Writing process means the steps and methods used to generate a finished piece of writing. The cycle of writing diagrams shows these steps are usually presented in a linear fashion but may naturally occur non-linearly. Generally, the writing process can be broken into six processes: generating ideas, structuring, drafting, evaluating, refining, and reviewing. It is known as a recursive process. While one is writing and revising, one might have to return to the prewriting step to develop and expand your ideas. Prewriting would be anything one does before you write a draft of your document. As the cycle of writing diagrams suggests, prewriting includes thinking, taking notes, talking to others, brainstorming, outlining, and gathering information.
