To Sarah, writing is like "playing the piano. What is oftentimes the hardest for me when playing the piano is figuring out how to make my hands work together. With each hand playing different rhythms and notes, playing well can seem almost insurmountable. The same is true for writing. On the one hand, I have a good idea that I want to explore, and on the other, I have a knowledge of the rules of grammar and syntax. Making the two 'hands' work together into a paper that adequately expresses both is hard, but is so rewarding."
