The writing process

The writing process

Every piece of writing goes through five stages:

  1. Brainstorm — Come up with ideas that support your topic.
  2. Outline — Organize the ideas in a clear and logical structure.
  3. Write — Explain and turn the ideas into sentences and paragraphs.
  4. Edit — Strenghten your writing. Make sentences concise. Make connections between ideas clear and explicit.
  5. Proofread — Fix grammar, spelling, and formatting mistakes.

Use placeholders

Use placeholders

Your goal is to keep the writing flow going. Whenever you reach a point where you don't know what words to use, how to connect paragraphs, or how to express an idea, leave a placeholder and move on.

The placeholder can be anything that stands out e.g. TODO, TK, !!!.
