Excerpt
Introduction: Writing is a complicated and often mysterious process. Although we may think of it as little more than arranging letters and words on a page, a few moments' reflection reveals that it is much more than that. On the one hand, writing is an art--we don't say Shakespeare's language is correct but rather that it is beautiful. On the other hand, writing is a science-- we want the instructions that came with our DVD player to be accurate, precise, and easy to understand.
