prewriting the time when a writer plays with ideas. during prewriting you must think about 4 things: topic, format, audience, time
prewriting (topic) what is your story going to be about
prewriting (format) what type of writing are you going to do? - paragraphs - journal entry -letter -poem -fictional story
prewriting (audience) who are you writing for? -teacher? -parents? friends? the general public?
prewriting (time) how much time will be devoted to this project?
drafting the stage when the writer begins to record ideas in rough form.
drafting (freewriting) a technique where students write nonstop, capturing as many ideas as possible.
