Method Writing is a series of writing exercises, practiced
individually, which, in combination, provide a toolbox of
techniques from which a writer can draw to construct a
coherent whole, whether it be a poem, an essay, a short
story, a play, or even a recipe. The process is always the
same, and does not require inspiration, or even a clear
vision, to get rolling.
Jack often tells his students that he is teaching them to
“make bricks” which can then be used to build anything they
like. Method Writing, unlike other approaches, focuses on
the bricks rather than the finished building.
