Revising Beyond the Sentence Level: One Adolescent Writer and a "Pregnant Pause."
Brockman, Elizabeth Blackburn
English Journal, v88 n5 p81-86 May 1999
Relates a student's experience writing a college application essay. Argues that switching topics should be redefined as global revision, a "pregnant pause" providing evidence of recursivity, and that adolescent writers who talk about their emerging texts are more likely to reconceptualize their written documents.
