Research dealing with the dynamics of writing is carried out in different theoretical fields and consequently resorts to different research methodologies. The aim of this paper is to study which definitions of the act of writing underlie the research reports which all intend to describe its dynamics.Two aspects of the dynamics of writing will be studied in order to see how they are organized into systems that configure the description of the act of writing in diverging ways: (i) temporality itself with an emphasis on the consequences of distortion or focus caused by the size of the time span or the granularity chosen; (ii) the notion of writing seen as a partly observable and partly unobservable activity that leads the researchers to reconstruct it in ways that differ with the indices they have selected.
