The Writing Process
The Five Steps:
Prewriting Drafting Revision Editing Publishing
Drafting Get your ideas on paper! Use sentences and paragraphs. Follow the basic structure of the genre you have chosen.
Drafting Don’t worry about getting it perfect!

After you finish your first draft, you should get someone else’s perception of your work.
Find a couple of people to read your work—or better yet—read it aloud to them.
Ask the following questions, and tell them that you would appreciate their honesty:
revision Add details, examples and illustrations to strengthen and clarify. Rewrite awkward or unclear sentences or paragraphs. Cut any words, sentences or paragraphs that are off-topic, distracting or unnecessary.
editing Correct: Spelling Grammar Punctuation Style
publishing Turn it in! Post it to a blog! Submit it to a publication! Any other ideas?
