From Journals to Essays: Reading, Writing, Re-Thinking.
Cook, Devan
Writing on the Edge, v7 n2 p33-43 Spr-Sum 1996
Discusses the difficulty involved in moving from writing a journal entry toward writing an essay. Uses the background of a trip to Ireland and writing an "Irish" journal as an example. Gives four strategies to use from journal to essay: double-entry notebook, defamiliarization (or "persona switching") techniques, cross-genre writing, and allowing time to pass. (PA)
