Revising and Editing
Revising is a stage in the writing process where you look over and find errors or proof read.
Editing is a stage as well where you improve your work by correcting errors and making sentences and words clearer.
Revision: Think to yourself
- Is my purpose for writing clear?
- Have I considered the questions and concerns of my audience?
- Have I written in the form and style appropriate for this genre of writing?
- Have I included sufficient examples and supporting details?
- Read your writing aloud to catch run-on sentences, over-used words, spelling errors, and typos.
- Share your writing with a family member or friend. See if they are able to catch errors you missed.
The influence of the setting on plot development
The setting plays a big part in your story whether you know it or not. The setting can change a story in a heart beat. For instance, how could they have made LOST the same if they weren't on that deserted island. They would have had to rewrite the whole plot to have the story make sense.
Importance of plot and settings.
There is a great deal of importance when it comes to plot and settings in a story. First off, the settings of a story can change a story depending on the time or place. The plot is the beginning, middle, and end. Without it, you could have your story all over the place.
Types of Point of View
There is First Person Point of View. This is where the narrator uses the word, me, I, or even we. You can only see the story through one person. There is also Third Person Omniscient.This is where the narrator knows EVERYTHING. The narrator isn't limited by what one character knows, sort of like the narrator is God. Finally, there is Third Person Limited. This is where the narrator knows only what one character knows, but can see what others are doing as well.
