Talk about your own process of writing as it compares to the process we have learned this session. The process of writing that I use is first prewriting. First I sit and decide on a topic to write about. Second I consider my audience thinking about who will be reading my written work. Third I think of ideas about the subject that I will be writing about and do research on the topic. The next step I take when writing is then drafting my ideas and research into my own words from all the information that I gathered, And then I read what I wrote several times to not only make sure it makes sense but also to make sure there aren’t any errors and I also ask others to read my work.
