I'm teaching a basic composition course at a local university, and I thought I would have a lot of "repair work" to do on their writing. I was pleasantly surprised at how good they already are...they just need a little polishing.|
One of the things I wanted to do with them was presentations on grammar points, but that seems unnecessary now. So, instead, I want to focus on qualities of good writing or of a good writer.
Keeping in mind that it's not a creative writing course, what do you think makes a good writer (or makes good writing)?
