Writing varies from a text message to a novel. Writers often have a difficult task in creating a piece of work that truly identifies the meaning of good writing. Every good writer usually starts with the basics such as genre, audience, rhetorical situation, and reflection of the piece. Throughout this semester, we have gone through all of these key terms in great detail with each new assignment that has come our way. In doing this, not only as students but also as writers, we have come to create our own theory of writing. Every writer has a different theory of writing though most are very similar. Now, at this point in the semester after doing countless journals, in-class exercises, and final assignments, I think I have figured out my own theory of writing. Theory of writing to me after all of these assignments is still a grey area but I can pick out main points of it. Theory of writing defined by me involves three main points. The first thing is how a writer does his or her best work. For instance, I like to do my writing at night when there is peace and quiet, almost to where I can hear aloud my own thoughts. Secondly, the theory includes what the writer does in planning. My planning includes no planning. I sit at my computer and just start typing all my thoughts on the screen until I do not feel like typing anymore. After that is done I usually cut the fat and revise all of my work. Lastly, I believe that the theory of writing process involves having one main goal in mind supported by smaller “sub-goals.” Like for example when doing my research essay on concussions in the NFL. I had the main topic of explaining concussions in the NFL with smaller “ingredients” helping me explain like the hits on a defenseless player rule and countless other ingredients to help me create my ultimate “burrito.” Also in my theory of writing, I have learned to accept the four key terms (audience, genre, rhetorical situation, and reflection) as important concepts to keep in mind
Tzvetan Todorov simplified the idea of narrative theory while also allowing a more complex interpretation of film texts with his theory of Equilibrium and Disequilibrium.
The theory is simply this:
* The fictional environment begins with a state of equilibrium (everything is as it should be in a state of equal balance between powers of any kind, where equality of importance or effect exists among the various parts of any complex unity).
* It then suffers some disruption (disequilibrium).
Explained By Psychopathology Theory
Psychopath, “A person with a psychopathic personality, which manifests as amoral and antisocial behavior, lack of ability to love or establish meaningful personal relationships, extreme egocentricity, failure to learn from experience” (Dictionary.com). With most of the characteristics of a being psychopath, Dino Thompson III has made it relatively easy to explain and compare his criminal history to that of the psychopathology theory.

Multiple Intelligences Theory posits that there are seven ways people understand in the world, described by Gardner as seven intelligences.Developed by Harvard psychologist Howard Gardner in 1983 and subsequently refined, this theory states there are at least seven ways (“intelligences”) that people understand and perceive the world. The first theory is called Linguistic. It is the ability to use spoken or written words. The second theory is called Logical-Mathematical. It is inductive and deductive….
Is it Possible to Write "Clearly and Simply"?
The task of writing clearly and simply has never been either clear or simple. In fact, it can be one of the most difficult of all writing tasks. Clear and simple writing is an art to which many aspire and few achieve. Even so, the understandability of web content depends upon clear and simple writing. Unclear or confusing writing is an accessibility barrier to all readers, but can be especially difficult for people with reading disorders….
EDITOR'S COMMENTS: REFLECTIONS ON THE CRAFT OF CLEAR WRITING
Writing is hard work. A clear sentence is no accident. Very few sentences come out right the first time, or even the third time. Remember this in moments of despair. If you find that writing is hard, it's because it is hard (Zinsser, 2006: 9). Most of us struggle with our writing. We thrash and hack our way through paragraphs, writing and editing and rewriting until we think we've made some progress on that God-forsaken….

One area of similarity of Tannen, Munoz and Tan’s essays is in their styles of writing. The first writing style that these three authors share is descriptive. All of the writers share their story using the descriptive approach telling their story with great detail. An example….

Writing is an art form created by past experiences, future hopes, fantasies, and limitless imagination. It brings feelings, knowledge, adventure, mystery, and foreign times and places to life. Writing can be very personal, remedial, cathartic, and affect you in ways that could change your life forever.

CRITICAL THINKING, READING, AND WRITING
For a food that is traced to Neolithic beginnings, like Mexico’s 42 tortillas, Armenia’s lahmejoun, Scottish oatcakes, and even matzos, pizza has remained fresh and vibrant. Whether it’s galettes, the latest thincrusted invasion from France with bacon and onion toppings, or a plain slice of a cheese pie, the varieties of pizza are clearly limited only by one’s imagination. —Lisa Pratt, “A Slice of History”
