4. The Carpenter

CarpenterAfter 'The Architect' comes 'The Carpenter', who starts building the draft:

'The carpenter nails … ideas together in a logical sequence, making sure each sentence is clearly written, contributes to the argument of the paragraph, and leads logically and gracefully to the next sentence.'81

The Carpenter works on the first part of Step 10 (Craft a well-written argument). Then The Inspector comes around. In this Toolkit, a hammer and spanner represent The Carpenter's mindset.
