-Readers should be drawn into a piece of writing so they with follow the trail to its meaning (keep them interested) -Readers are in control; readers can leave the writing at any time -Readers need to have a sense they’re moving towards the meaning -Rewriting effectively=reading what you have written with a stranger’s eyes to see if there is a clear, seductive trail of exploration that runs through the draft Sign of disorder 1. The trail through draft is based on false assumptions/unclear assumptions 2. The writer tells us emotions rather than making us feel them 3. Written by a kangaroo jumping for un-understandable reasons 4. Writer lost in info that has no context or interest 5. Writer wanders off trail to nice things that are interesting but not relevant 6. Info doesn’t advance reader’s understanding of subject 7. Readers leaps back and froth in time or logic for no artistic reason 8. Draft is full of holes 9. Reader’s questions are not answered the moment they are asked

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
