One thing I did this week in my writing that differs from what I normally do when writing is that I thought about what I was writing. Normmlly I prefer to write with no destination and no direction. However, when I was faced with the challenge of writing an "essay" about the changes in McMurphy I knew I couldn't just wing it or go out in a limb; I had to have a destination and direct. Eventually I wanted to arrive at how McMurphy has changed and how he hasn't changed, and the events that took place in the ward and how he has developed relationships with the men on the ward. I tried using this process to come up with ideas to bace my paper off of, and it worked, very well. It kept me on task and focused on where this piece needed to go.
