Some rules for writing may include having a good hook to captivate the audience and another is to have good grammar/punctuation.Another rule that I strive for is to know what the audience wants.Some things that make it hard to write is not knowing where to start and not knowing how to end the story.
Mike Ross points out how students can be so caught up in what they’re supposed to write, but never actually get to writing because they have no idea where to start because of all the rules given from different teachers.I agree that writing strategies can sometimes hinder the writing process for students because I have also had prior experience with this. Even now, writing this blog, I am getting writer’s block. I’m more worried about what should go into my essay then actually writing it. Writer’s block is not the end of the world, students and myself need to just learn how to step out of our minds for a few seconds.
