For many people, the writing process isn’t a straightforward line, but rather a circle made up of a series of steps. Writers can start the process at any step and jump from one step to another until they are satisfied with what they have written.
**Remember that these steps don’t always go in a particular order and are recursive (you can jump back or forward to any step you need to use again). The fact is no one writes a perfect first draft. Using these steps can help your writing be clearer and more effective.
