Lamott, Anne. Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life. New

York: Anchor Books, 1995.

Lamott’s book offers honest advice on the nature of a writing life, complete with its insecurities and failures. Taking a humorous approach to the realities of being a writer, the chapters in Lamott’s book are wry and anecdotal and offer advice on everything from plot development to jealousy, from perfectionism to struggling with one’s own internal critic. In the process, Lamott includes writing exercises designed to be both productive and fun. Lamott offers sane advice for those struggling with the anxieties of writing, but her main project seems to be offering the reader a reality check regarding writing, publishing and struggling with one’s own imperfect humanity in the process. Rather than a practical handbook for producing and/or publishing, this text is indispensable because of its honest perspective, its down-to-earth humor, and its encouraging approach. Chapters in this text could easily be included in the curriculum for a writing class. Several of the chapters in Part 1 address the writing process and would serve to generate discussion on students’ own drafting and revising processes. Some of the writing exercises would also be appropriate for generating classroom writing exercises. Students should find Lamott’s style both engaging and enjoyable.

Meyer, Michael. “What Is Ethics?” Markkula Center for Applied Ethics. Santa Clara
University, 1 Jan. 2010. Web. 9 Mar. 2015.
This short article depicts what does the word “Ethics” mean to people in society. Meyer makes reference to a quick interview with business people conducted by sociologist Raymond Baumhart, and he concludes that most people have their feelings serve as their base of ethical standards, which Meyer considers that is not what ethics is supposed to be. Meyer suggests ethics includes two parts. The first part refers to standards of rights and obligations that benefits society, and the second part refers to the standards of moral conducts and beliefs shaped through social development. This article is relatively persuasive despite it lacks specific evidences to support its arguments because it is more of a pathos persuasion than a logos one, by attacking what common people view ethics is. This article offers a credible source and proof of people are emotional on ethical issues, this allows the research paper to develop a more logical perspective on ethics.

Please tell me if you need more explanation. Thanks!!!
