Nature Writing
The writing process is much like the scientific method. The scientist first hypothesizes, then experiments, and finally revises his or her thinking. Donald Murray says the process is first a "pre-vision, then a vision, and finally a revision." . . . Bob Tierney, from "Write to Learn Science"
