I have not been asking for an algorithmic way to do
writing. To me, asking for such is nutso.
Analysis exists - specific steps can be identified for
doing such. Writing also exists - you are reading
some. But I have found no evidence that structured
writing exists as a seperate entity from these two.
Dick, you mentioned Logic 101 to me before. As you
are a fan of logic, let me ask you: What are the steps
to structured writing? (Please do not say do analysis
and then write.)
