Skilled Writers Pre-Write

Reasearch says so

I’m doing a Master’s degree in Language Education. I’m focussing my study on helping non-native English writers so I’m learning many things about writing and writers’ processes these days.

A fascinating thing I’ve recently learned is that the process of writing starts the moment you start thinking about what to write. Writing, then, is just an idea-transcribing activity.

This is why skilled writers spend time planning, thinking, and organising ideas before they put words down.

I ramble about this in this video. I hope this is helpful.

I’m writing a long-form article to expand on this which will include some other things skilled writers do. I’ll publish it soon.
