How is the writing process like creating a work of art?
Transcript of How is the writing process like creating a work of art?
Have you ever felt this way?
A. Find Your Idea
B. Build on Your Idea
C. Plan and Structure Your Idea
FIND your idea:
Look around. Ideas are everywhere. Daily routines, childhood memories, important issues can all inspire. Consider keeping a small notebook or a piece of paper in the back of your binder for catching your ideas. Your imagination is your only limit.
The Frustrated Writer
The Writing Process...
There's no need to fear!
Don't fly by the seat of your pants!
Keep a personal journal.
BUILD on your idea:
brainstorming, listing, graphic organizers, talking, social networking, free writing, sensory details, literacy quadrants...etc.
PLAN & STRUCTURE your idea:
Piece it together. Sort through your ideas and choose what to use.
The WRITING PROCESS is much like the process an artist embarks upon in order to create a work of art...
"My aunt passed away when I was in the 4th grade...a few months later my only living grandfather passed away..."
"the deaths of loved ones can have a profound effect on a child..."
Artist at work
issues close to her heart
upon which to base her artwork.
upon her idea by
contemporary artists in order to expand ideas on how to express herself visually.
"Sometimes It's Just a Matter of Holdin' On" 1994
her idea by writing a 5 page, typed proposal and creating 3 artist-based PowerPoint presentations.
Stacey spent dozens of hours preparing for her final piece. She found an idea, built upon it and planned the structure of her creation...
...all this effort, and she hadn't even started collecting her materials and supplies yet!
This is your first rough draft. Forget about word count & grammar.
If you stray off-topic, don't worry. Great writers complete multiple drafts before producing a finished product. This step is free writing, only with more direction.
Don't be tempted to skip this step!
Adopt the A.R.R.R. approach.
1. Does your paper meet the minimum word count requirements AND have you accomplished the purpose of your writing?
2. Have you included enough information and evidence for your audience to make sense of your writing?
NO? Then write more, prove your point, address your topic and/or give more textual evidence. GO!
did you know?
The Creative Process:
And now back to the Writing Process...
flow pacing sequence arrangement
Would you better make your point if you reorganized?
You made additions, but is your paper TOO long now? Overloaded with too much info and details? Eliminate the extraneous.
Do you need more evidence & clarification? Are you contradicting yourself? Get a 2nd opinion (feedback). Then rewrite and replace if/where needed.
And now the leap back to the...
Artist's Creative Process
