THE WRITING PROCESS: Revising



REVISING

After you have completed your draft, the next step is to revise, or improve your writing.

First, reread your draft carefully. Have you stated your purpose clearly in your thesis statement? Have you included all the details necessary to support your thesis?
Next, check for unity. Is the organization logical? Are the details presented in a way that the reader will understand how they relate to your thesis statement?
Finally, check for coherence. Is each sentence clear? Does the writing flow smoothly from sentence to sentence and paragraph to paragraph? Rework your writing to make it clear. Add or replace words to convey meaning as precisely as possible. While putting your ideas on paper, you may have left out adjectives or adverbs that can make your writing more interesting. Now is time to add color and action to your writing by adding more descriptive words.
