Once writers have brainstormed ideas about their subject and have a clear idea of their goal, the next stage is drafting. This is the part of the process where the writer composes a rough draft of his work. From the outline created in the brainstorming stage, the writer expands and forms his ideas into a formal structure including full sentences and paragraphs. Formatting will be different, depending on the type of work; but this step gives a structure to the points made in the outline. In this step it may be helpful for writers to ask someone to read his drafts to get feedback. For some, it may take a couple drafts to get into the flow of writing in order to convey ideas properly. 3) Revising During the next stage, the revising stage, the writer may be able to combine ideas from different drafts if needed. This step of the process is all about making one’s writing better. This step includes reading the drafts again and taking a look at the big picture of the work. The writer may have to rewrite, remove, or rearrange whole paragraphs to make the paper flow better. The writer also should look to see what else is missing from the paper and add it where necessary. The writer should make sure once again that the main goal is being accomplished and ask others to read the paper again to assure that the writing is clear enough to get the point across. 4) Proofreading Once the writer has looked at the bigger picture and has the main structure of the paper, he should then move to the proofreading stage of the process.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
