Analyzing Effective Writing

Analysis is the process of breaking something down into its component parts so as to study it in detail. How do we break down our writing? What makes writing effective? We will explore some answers to these questions by analyzing some specifically selected writing samples.

About the Speaker

36033_1142201571091_6776510_nDonald McLean has been working as a software developer for almost thirty years, but has been reading almost since he was born. For many years he wanted to write, but never managed more than a few pages. One day a story idea appeared in his head, and wouldn’t let go until he wrote it down. He writes stories that are science fiction and/or fantasy but is, as yet, unpublished.

He has been happily married for thirty years; he and his wife have three grown children.
