We had lengthy discussions about our reading of The Wealth of Reality: An Ecology of Composition by Margaret Syverson. The portion of the reading and the discussion of this book was Syverson’s discussion of the ecology of composition particularly in relation to “consider[ing] the writer’s interaction with the environment” (6)
In relation to that environment, a classmate and I agreed that the ability to bring a writing tool, like a laptop, anywhere we go allows us to compose in different spaces more easily. In fact, I have become so comfortable with composing on the computer, since I can type almost as fast as I can think, that I find that composing is easier and I can be more prolific with my writing. I have become so enamored of composing on the computer that the only time I use pen and paper in my writing process is when I am struck with an idea that I feel compelled to write down before it slips away.
