Writing constructs the past – makes a past, not present. o Is form built in? Form is not the plot. Form + content + material. Form is significant because the form you speak to your mom is different from the boss form and the friend form etc.. o Accessibility determines how meaning is generated from a text. How is the material object influencing what is said and how it is said? 2
