Brainstorming Idea(Graphic Organizer)

Brainstorming is a great technique to solve a problem, create new ideas, or gather information through discussion.

The concept of brainstorming has seemed to evolve with times. Previously, brainstorming was limited to a group discussion on a chalkboard and words written down in a semi-organized way.

Revising and Editing Techniques

  1. Revising takes practice:
    Try reviewing with a limited agenda, for example with focus on vocabulary,
    and build from there.
  2. Read the paper out loud to yourself.
    Read it slowly. How does it "sound?"
  3. Cover the text with a blank paper,
    and lower it down as you read for a line by line analysis.

Does the text flow in an effective manner?
Is it too long for what you wish to say? too short?
Keep in mind your audience: they do not know what you do.
They rely on what information you give them, in the order you give it to them

Influence on Plot Development

In order to find the meaning in writing, you should look for the theme. The theme is created through the structure. How the author organizes his or her work will affect how we interpret it. Because all elements relate to the structure, we should spend time studying the plot, how ideas are organized, how characters are introduced, what changes, and what is resolved in the story.
