The Writing Process

By Bridget Baudinet

Good writers are not born; they are made. Producing a quality piece of writing - whether it be a novel, a screenplay, a poem, or an editorial - takes time and effort. There are many different formulas for the writing process, but the basic steps involve prewriting, drafting, revising, editing, and publishing. Good writers who follow these steps can ensure a product to be proud of.

Storyboard Text

  • EXPOSITION
  • CONFLICT
  • RISING ACTION
  • Last year, I was a seventh grader at Springfield Middle School. My grandparents lived just down the street. My grandma cooked us dinner often, and my grandpa gave me piano lessons every week.
  • CLIMAX
  • Then, suddenly, just before my yearly piano recital, my grandfather had a sudden heart attack and was rushed to the hospital.
  • FALLING ACTION
  • Each day, as I practiced for the recital, I couldn't stop thinking about Grandpa. I struggled to learn my pieces.
  • RESOLUTION
  • In memory of my grandfather...
  • On New Year's Eve, my grandfather passed away.
  • For a week, I couldn't even touch the piano. Then, I began to play every day. As I played, I felt connected to Grandpa.
  • I dedicated my recital to him. To me, he is the best piano teacher that ever lived.
