PERSPECTIVES, PROFILES, EXPLAINERS, AND OTHER PIECES
When commissioned to write a piece, the writer may work entirely from secondary source materials, entirely from primary source materials, or from some combination of the two.
These pieces were all written for a specific context, a specific audience. And in terms of source materials, they hit all three categories. Depending upon how closely the work must follow certain set parameters established by the client, and what kind of material they want woven in, the work sometimes resembles rewriting, sometimes not. Sometimes it is very much from scratch.
