Writing, for the majority of our students, is a cumbersome task. For most English teachers this is quite a realisation as it cuts across our own disposition to write, to read, and to enjoy doing both well. Writing as a process therefore comes naturally to us, but for many of our students it only adds to the heavy burden they shoulder every time they put pen to paper. Writing on computers provides on means of removing the burden from the writing process, whilst simultaneously opening up to our students the joy of writing we experience.
