The Writing Process
Anybody who writes understands, consciously or not, that writing is a process. While you can find lots of charts and posters that show 5 steps, I think it basically comes down to three – planning, writing, and revising.
In my experience, planning and revising are actually the 2 most important aspects of the process.
Planning (prewriting) is where we generate the ideas that the writing gets on paper. And the real craft of writing comes in the revision.
