Brainstorming

Brainstorming can help you choose a topic, develop an approach to a topic, or deepen your understanding of the topic’s potential.


There are many different types of charts that can help you with brainstorming. For example:

Revising and Editing

Revising- a proof including corrections made in an earlier proof.


Editing- prepare (written material) for publication by correcting, condensing, or otherwise modifying it.

Why is Revising and Editing Important?

Writing is a process of discovery, and you don’t always produce your best stuff when you first get started. So revising and editing is a chance for you to look critically at what you have written to see

  • if it’s really worth saying,
  • if it says what you wanted to say, and
  • if a reader will understand what you’re saying.

Point Of View

What is point of view?

Point of view is the perspective from which a speaker or writer recounts a narrative or presents information. There are many types of POV's, such as:


*First Person POV- First person point of view is a point of view in which an "I" or "we" serves as the narrator of a piece of work.


*Second Person POV- In second person point of view, the narrator tells the story to another character using "you"; the story is being told through the the addressee's point of view.


*Third Person- The third person point of view is a form of storytelling in which a narrator relates all action in third person, using third person pronouns such as "he" or "she."

Plot

Also called storyline. The plan, scheme, or main story of a literary or dramatic work, as a play, novel, or short story.

Without the plot the story wouldn't exactly be interesting. There would be no major conflict and there would be no problems, lessening the reader's excitement and interest towards the story.

Plot Development

writers develop plot through the introduction, development, and resolution of the conflict, (1) problem is introduced in beginning, (2) characters face roadblocks as they attempt to solve problem in middle of story, (3) the high point in the action occurs when the problem is about to be solved (4) problem is solved and the roadblocks are overcome at the end of the story.
