The Writing Process

The writing process consist of the following:
  1. Prewrite
  2. Identify the thesis
  3. Support the thesis with evidence
  4. Organize the evidence
  5. Write the first draft
  6. Revise the essay

According to this chapter these guides lines should be able to help organize and write your essay. However it does state that these guidelines are not etched in stone. I personally tend to do things a little differently. I gather my ideas for my main topic then gather as much evidence to support my thesis. I then sit and organize the evidence while attempting to prewrite. I would write my first draft. Then revise.
