  • 7. Drafting and Revising
    Though good writers begin with a clear focus on a topic, they usually discover what they want to say through writing. Only by writing can we fully know what we are thinking. Composing an essay is a recursive process. The writer gets down preliminary ideas and then develops a series of drafts. Each draft helps to discover the content and organizational structure inherent in the argument. The drafting process requires several stages of development. Revising happens only in the context of drafting. Once important ideas and some supporting evidence are successfully recorded on paper, the revising process begins. (Sas Curriculum Pathways)
  • 8. REP - REVISING
    Revising
    Revising should not be confused with editing. Revising is actually part of the drafting process and involves the following:
    Changing the order of presentation of big ideas
    Moving sentences and paragraphs from one place to another
    Changing the focus or emphasis of a paragraph
    Constructing transitional sentences to bind ideas together
    During revision a writer may discover that what seemed minor, supporting evidence is actually a major element of the argument deserving fuller development. Or, an unnecessary digression is removed. During revision the draft tells the writer what needs to be added, changed, or deleted to communicate effectively with the audience, to make the purpose and message clear, and to make the argument flow logically and persuasively.
  • 9. REP -- Editing
    Editing
    Editing comes after revising and is the process of refining writing. Careful attention is paid to the wording of sentences.
    Do sentences convey effectively the intent, focus, and content required by the argument?
    Are sentences economical, free of unnecessary prepositional phrases, convoluted clauses, repetition, and wordiness?
    Are sentences precise?
    Poets, who must make every word count, devote a great deal of time and energy to this process. Effective prose writers give this same attention to word choice, especially at points where diction, style, and tone can make important points more persuasive. Editing also includes, of course, attending to major grammatical issues such as sentence completeness, agreement, and correct usage.
  • 10. REP -- Proofing
    Proofing
    Proofing is the simplest and the last step in the writing process. During proofing, the writer searches for those few errors overlooked during the editing process.
    Are all words spelled correctly?
    Is the punctuation correct?
    Are any necessary words accidentally omitted?
    However, proofing can be difficult for the author. Fully aware of what is intended, the writer may fail to see glaring errors another reader spots immediately. One effective proofing device is to read the essay backwards, sentence by sentence. The best approach, however, is to do what professional proofreaders do. Solicit the help of two people and give each one a copy of your writing. One proofreader follows the text carefully as the other reads it aloud, reading every word, punctuation mark, and unusual spelling. Using this process, one of the two readers should catch your errors.
