Donald Murray Reflection

1. How does Murray define writing? What is its purpose?

Writing is rewriting until you “hit the goal.” The “final product” of a writing usually goes through many drafts before it is put out into the world to be read. Writing cannot just have one draft and call it a day. To be at its best, it suggested that it goes through revision and rewriting process.

2. Talk about what Murray means when he uses terms like “discovery” and “ignorance.”

When Murray mentions discovery, he talks about the way he writes. Rather than writing about a research, he writes it as if he was included in the research. Through writing, the writer is able to connect other words of information to those they write about. They will be able to write through their own ways with different uses of words to describe their piece of work. As for ignorance, writers will go through the oblivious to what they are doing at the moment and too focused on the future.

3. What is “product” vs. “process”?

The process tends to be long depending how fair a writer want to go until the reach the perfection writing. The product is usually the end product that is showcased to people presenting the idea of the writer.

4. What is “internal revision”? What is “external revision?”

Internal revision is when all the ideas are written down with the intentions to be narrowed down to find the ideal topic to go deep in detail. The reviser is themselves. External revision is with a different audience that offers a different opinion compared to theirs in order to find the right language, form and voice.

5. Explain, in your own words, what Murray means by the following: “content,” “form and structure,” “language.”

Content is where the new/old information come in that could be used to back up the writer’s purpose of the writing piece. The form and structure is the formating the bring the reader from start to end rather than throwing random points at different points. With formation allows the reader to understand and grasp the point better. As for language, it is the style that the writer use to demonstrate their piece. They could bring in new words to experiment with the way they approach their point or connecting them to other words to strengthen a point.

My Shelf/ My Influences


  1. To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before
  2.  Searching


  1. Girl with a Pearl Earring by Tracy Chevalier
  2. The Fold by An Na


To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before and Searching taught me that it is best to be honest about how you feel rather than keeping it to yourself or writing it down. It is bound to come out sooner or later even if it is for the best or worst. It is best to address something as soon as possible rather than “waiting for the right moment” because things could become worse than it should. Girl with a Pearl Earring was a book assigned to me when I was taking Art and Literature in high school. It was a bit out of my comfort zone with the unexpected events, but it taught me about the reality of life compared to the typical love stories told by movies and books. The Fold that you should love yourself rather than undergoing the knife to become the “perfect face.” Sometimes it is not worth changing how you look to impress others.
