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.

  • Let the ideas flow. Jot down any ideas that come to mind in connection with your topic. Write words, phrases, or sentences. You can even draw pictures!
  • Arrange your ideas in a logical order. Plan out your main points and your supporting examples.
  • Write away! Take your outline and turn your ideas into orderly sentences and paragraphs.
  • Make significant improvements to the ideas in your writing. This may mean changing the order of ideas, deleting parts, adding new parts, or improving vocabulary to avoid repetition.
  • Reread your paper to clean up any mistakes. Correct spelling, punctuation, or formatting errors.
