The author's longstanding method of improving a law student's legal writing is to encourage the student to "talk-out" what the student is trying to write. The author finds support for that method by exploring the relationship among thinking, talking, and writing through the work of experts in those fields. The author concludes that the best way to find the overlap of thinking, talking, and writing, which is the point of effective communications, is to talk-out what one is writing.
