A Form of Therapy

Writing as Thinking is an approach to writing that emphasizes the connection between writing and thinking. It is based on the idea that writing is not just a way of communicating ideas, but also a way of exploring and developing them.

One key aspect of the Writing as Thinking approach is the use of a guided process. This involves breaking the writing process down into smaller steps and focusing on each step individually. This can help writers to clarify their thoughts and ideas, organize their writing, and revise and edit their work more effectively.

Common Steps

Some common steps in a Writing as Thinking process might include:

Pre-writing: This is the stage where writers brainstorm ideas, do research, and gather and organize materials.

Drafting: This is the stage where writers begin to put their ideas into written form. It is important to focus on getting ideas down on paper rather than worrying about perfection at this stage.

Revising: In this stage, writers take a step back from their writing and look at it with a critical eye. They may reorganize or add to their writing, or delete or revise passages that are not working.

Smaller Steps

Editing: In this stage, writers focus on the technical aspects of their writing, such as grammar, spelling, and punctuation.

Proofreading: In this final stage, writers carefully review their work to catch any remaining errors and ensure that the writing is clear and concise.

The Writing as Thinking approach can be a helpful way to approach the writing process for those who are new to writing or who struggle with organizing their thoughts. By breaking the process down into smaller steps and focusing on each step, writers can gain understanding of their own ideas and communicate more effectively.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
