'Architecture', 'Bricklaying', 'Oil Painting', 'Watercolour' — Four Writing Strategies
From "The Act of Writing" by Daniel Chandler · "Architectural strategy" writers outline/plan first, write a complete draft, then revise the first draft into a final one · "Bricklayer strategy" writers work sequentially, composing, writing and editing one sentence until it works, then repeat until done · "Oil painting strategy" writers write multiple partial drafts, sections and fragments, then pull them together, review, and edit into final form · "Watercolour strategy" writers try to minimize editing and maximize spontaneity, preferring to get finalized writing done in one pass More details here if you're interested: http://visual-memory.co.uk/daniel/Documents/short/strats.html Which strategy or strategies do you find yourself using most often?
