Announcement: Food Par-Tay in CS 103 tomorrow. Bring a dish and be ready to present!

More Daily Writing...Brainstorming & Drafting the Final Food Blog

Your final food blog asks you to discuss the connection between writing and ''food." Why are these two topics so inter-related?

  • Bazerman and Tinberg argue, "Writing is a full act of the mind, drawing on the full resources of our nervous system, formulating communicative impulses into thoughts and words and transcribing through the work of the fingers" (74). How is cooking similar?
  • Based on the reading in Concept 5.4 in NWWK, what purpose does reflection serve a writer? What about the way we reflect on a special meal or event that was centered around food? What role does reflection play in the life of a cook, of a family who eats together, of someone who enjoys food?
  • Why does food need writing?
  • Continue to draft your initial thoughts and ideas for your final blog in the journal in Bb. Use this brainstorming/pre-writing to help you develop a final, cogent draft for your last Food Blog post.
