Week 2 Paragraph
The approach to writing an assignment for a class is a five-step process. The prewriting stage begins the first day I read my assignment. Before I sit down to begin my project I find thoughts and ideas present themselves through out the day. I will write down those ideas and use them to brainstorm. Drafting is when I sit down and put those ideas on paper, I am focusing on the content I am putting together. This step is similar to what we have learned in class. I am organizing my thoughts into paragraphs and formulating my first draft. I usually clear my mind after this point, I will get up and get a bottle of water and move around. Revising or refining what I have written is my next step. This is the point where I will add an additional fact or rearrange how I worded something. This is where reorganization comes in, I will also have my friend read what I have written and listen to her suggestions. Editing is my fourth step and after I run a check on mechanical, grammatical, and spelling errors and fix them, I now have a new step I use. I like using the University of Phoenix Center for Writing Excellence WritePoint service to submit my work. It will provide feedback on grammar by inserting comments into the text of a paper. Once my editing is complete then it is time for the fifth step and this also coincides with our textbook. Publishing is my fifth and final step, and my paper meets the audience.
