• Drafting


    • Drafting occurs when you put your ideas and sentences into paragraphs.  Here you concentrate on explaining and supporting your ideas fully.  You also begin to connect your ideas. 
    • During drafting, your main focus is getting your ideas onto paper.  Don't pay attention to such things as spelling in this stage.
    • This draft tends to be writer-centered:  it is you telling yourself what you know and think about the topic.
