While reading Pearson I came across a couple of "hotspots". The first hot spot that I came across was when I read under understanding exploratory writing, "The essential move for exploratory thinking and writing is to keep a problem alive through consideration of multiple solutions or points of view"(Rammage, Bean, and Johnson 107). I really like this quote, because it displays what makes good writing. When you raise a problem, and keep a problem alive it makes the writing very interesting for the reader. Another hotspot that I came across in chapter 5 was, "The key to effective exploratory writing is to create a tension between alternative views"(Rammage, Bean, and Johnson 108). This is also key to good writing, it is playing the believing and doubting game. because that helps you give two views not only one. Both of these hotspots are two key points in helping your exploratory writing be effective. In my opinion having two different views on things makes the reader much more interested, and it creates an argument in your writing. By having an argument it makes your reader think more, and therefor your writing will be effective. When you keep a problem alive, and analyze it in all different ways by asking questions and making your reader have to think then you are doing a good job.
