"Writing" encompasses a wide range of activities, but in this section, we'll focus on what might also be called "drafting"–actually putting your thoughts into words and sentences and capturing them on the page.  Please see the Prewriting and Revising pages for additional resources.

For more about establishing a strong writing process, see Chapter 2 and Chapter 3 of the Online Guide to Writing.
