Speaking and Writing as Mental Activities
This section explores the virtues of speech and how they can be brought to writing. More specifically, it considers speaking and writing as mental activities, rather than physical activities. It also discusses the early stages of writing where it is possible to do “unplanned speaking onto the page,” or using our “speaking gear” for writing—as in freewriting.
