I never thought writing a thesis would be such a metacognitive enterprise. Writing about process writing while you are struggling with your own words definitely makes all your hypotheses come alive. It’s like writing with an echo.
In fact, I’m not in full control of what my fingers are typing right now. I’m just letting words flow. It’s called freewriting. Never to let the writer’s block get in the way. Read. Know your topic. Make connections. And keep writing. Just as Elbow (1973) says (in Brown, 2001) “Meaning is not what you start out with but what you end up with.” Just keep writing.
By the way, my thesis so far….
