Looking Around

Lamott goes from craft to mental theory in part two. This first section delves into how writers take the bystander role in day to day life. This allows them to observe the world around them, absorb the happenings of life and put it down on paper.

Although this section is short, we can all come to the conclusion that Fulkerson’s expressionist philosophy explained in his essay “Four Philosophies of Composition” would agree with this section completely.  Being an expressionist, the focal point is being true to oneself as a writer and how one sees the world.  The writer creates a voice that is true to their own.
