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.
Forms of Point of View
Second Person: The story-teller tells the story to another character using 'you', 'your', 'you're'.
Third person: The narrator is not a part of the story and uses the words he, she, him, her, etc.
Setting & Plot Developement
Plot: Describes that make up a story or the main part of the story (literarydevices.net).
The Importance of Setting & Plot
With setting, the reader can picture where the story is happening and see how it affects the story.
