Writing multiple drafts

March 19, 2011 at 1:27 pm (Uncategorized)

Writing is a whole process that involves planning, pre writing, revising, editing. Therefore, there are some activities to support each one of these stages. Making a draft for example helps with the pre writing activity.

Once you have thought and organized your ideas you may start writing them as a first trial. I feel like I have a new challenge each time I have to make a new draft. If I had mistakes as a first step I have to correct them.

Afterwards comes the hardest part because you have to see if the draft is accurate enough to transmit the idea you wanted to transmit. I totally recommend using this technique because we develop the skill of revising ourselves in order to make fewer mistakes in further writing tasks.

    Yeah I guess writing takes a little bit more work than many of us thought it did, it´s actually a very structured, straight forward algorithm.

      I know! Even though we don’t have to make calculations, we do have to think a lot. Sometimes I find it even more difficult than studying for Math. Let me tell you I’m really bad at Math.

    Juan, do you really feel this way? I’ll be perfectly honest. Although I know that I control my writing the best through the process, I often feel limitations by having to go back and do it again. I just want to be able to produce something lovely without having to put in the work.

    How do you feel, I am really? Although the writing process is a great tool for us, it is so different than what you are accustomed to, isn’t it? Ellen

      It is tottally different. So far I’ve learnt so many thing and so many styles to write that I used to ignore before this course. Everythin for me was about bein logical, but I didn’t used to pay attention to the sentence structures and linking words that much. On the other hand, corrections are for eternity and I feel desperated sometimes that I feel I’m not gonna ever finis learning.
