He also goes against the idea that writing is only a two-step process, saying that this is the wrong method to go about writing and is a backwards way of thinking. I agree with Elbow’s ideas because this is how I think about the writing process, and is how I write most of the time.

I have also gotten better at giving a reason for why I have included different points in my papers. In my first paper of the semester I discussed Vershawn Young’s idea…
