Writing a Draft
Now you are ready to start creating the parts and putting them together. It is easy to assume that it will be once and done. Unfortunately, with writing, it rarely works that way. You can not write the last draft first! You must begin with a preliminary draft. At this point, you need to concentrate on creating the parts, not on making it presentation-ready. There will be time for that later. Since we have word processors on our computers (Microsoft Word, for example), this is much easier to achieve that it used to be.
We can have the security of knowing that we can go back and change what we are writing—that we do not have to copy everything from the start as in the past if we change our minds. Take advantage of this feature by concentrating on getting everything in your essay that you want in it, knowing that you can correct such things as spellings and typos later and that you can take out parts you decide you do not want and insert new ideas later.
