    • Prewriting
      • Prewriting is the process of coming up with ideas for your essay.
      • This is not formal, polished writing.
      • There are many prewriting techniques, but we will be discussing:
        • Brainstorming
        • Freewriting
        • Clustering
        • Outlining
    • Brainstorming Just think!
    • Freewriting Just write!
    • Clustering
      • A way of narrowing your thoughts by connecting your ideas
      • Great techniques for visual learners
    • Try it!
    • Topics to choose from
      • Who knows me best?
      • What do I worry about?

      • An unforgettable dream
      • My worst vacation
      • My first concert
    • Outlining
      • Outlining comes after you already have the ideas for your paper.
      • It is a way of laying out your thoughts before you begin writing.
      • Use bullet points to write down each concept you want to mention in the order you want to mention them.
      • For more detail, see the Writing Center’s handout on outlining.
    • Drafting
      • The draft is the first attempt to organize information.
      • Typically called a rough draft for a reason.
      • Your essay structure does not need to be perfect.
      Starring Tat and Rodell!
    • Try it! (again!)
    • Revising
      • Reworking your essay so that the ideas are expressed in the best way possible.
      • Revising is not the editing stage.
