The writing process

Jackson Brus


  • the fist step in the writing process is brainstorming
  • brainstorming involves just getting all of your ideas on paper
  • while brainstorming, it is important to not censor or be neat, just write


  • Prewriting is the step where you first organize your thoughts
  • You have to turn your ideas into sentences and determine what order they should go in
  • You also need a topic sentence and a conclusion

Compose (Rough Draft)

  • While writing a rough draft you should make sure that your sentences are in the correct order
  • It is very important for your sentences to make sense
  • Be sure to color code your sentences


  • Evaluation is just like it sounds, evaluate yourself, or, ask someone else to evaluate you
  • evaluation is mainly just overall making sense


  • Revision is basically changing the main ideas and overall appearance
  • Make sure all of your ideas are in order and you think it looks good


  • Editing is pretty much going over all of the fine points in details
  • While editing, you should look for all of your grammar and spelling mistakes


  • Just like it sounds, turn it in to your teacher, or just share it

well, this video really sums up the writing process

Core 4

there are four main topic sentence types: number statement, simple statement, situation stance, and interrogotive


Transitions include: first, second, third, next, then, later, equally important, and many more

Main Ideas(yellow)

Main ideas are yellow because they tell you to slow down, its a new topic


Details are red because they tell you: STOP tell me more about this topic


Conclusions are green because they are telling you that you have come full-circle and are close to being back at the begining
