The A to Z Challenge asks bloggers to post 26 articles on a themed topic. It’s supposed to be every day except Sundays during the month of April but I found this way to busy and decided to post mine ‘about’ once a month. Yes, it’ll take me a couple of years. Sigh.
My topic, like the last two times I did the conventional approach, is writing genres.
a formal and systematic written discourse on some subject, generally in greater depth than an essay and more concerned with investigating the principles of the subject
- This can be as simple as written instructions on some topic of great depth and importance.
- It must be written in a way that exposes it to examination–or peer review.
- It must be formal with everything that includes. It would never be written as a text message, an email, a Tweet, or via pictures.
- It must be systematic, meaning orderly, logical, and easy to examine by those interested.
- It must be comprehensive–complete in its scope with all questions answered.
- It should be revolutionary in nature, on a topic or a twist to a topic that is not expected but fully supported by logic and principle.
- The Art of War by Sun Tzu
- Euclid’s Elements by Euclid
- The Prince by Niccolo Machiavelli
- Discourse on the Method by Rene Descartes
- Two Treatises of Government by John Locke
