Revising and Editing Techniques

  • Rainbow Editing: Use colors and go over grammar, spelling, or other writing techniques.
  • Rough/ Final Draft: If you're writing a short story, write a rough draft, write what you think you want on a piece of paper, then write a final draft, write the things you want off the rough draft on another paper and fix mistakes you might have done on the other paper.

Setting & Plot Developement

Setting: Where the story takes place, either in the ocean, traveling on land, or up in the sky.

Plot: Describes that make up a story or the main part of the story (literarydevices.net).

The Importance of Setting & Plot

Without plot, the story wouldn't have a purpose, it'll just say random things.

With setting, the reader can picture where the story is happening and see how it affects the story.
