Writing involves smaller internal and larger external considerations and the myriad relationships between the two variables of coherence and unity. There are choices to be made about words, about sentences, about paragraphs, and about overall structure. The results of these choices amount to ''style.'' Stylistic choice, then, is the subject of this course - individual style, historical style, genre style. Rest assured that understanding more about ''style'' opens new insights to the entire writing process. Practice writing will consider ''Tough, Sweet, and Stuffy'' styles among others.
