The Writing Process: A Step-by-Step Approach for Everyday Writers
Writing is more than a way to record sentences we've already shaped in our heads. As someone famously said, that'真s just typing.This book will help you develop an approach that includes the thinking part of writing. A series of logical steps will lead you from idea (or assignment) to finished written work. It answers some basic questions that every writer faces: How do I get organized? What do I do first? What next? How do I evaluate my drafts? How about word choice? When have I said enough? How should I end?Designed to help almost any writer, The Writing Process is also an excellent tool for teachers of writing, as well as for parents who want to give their youngsters an extra boost.
