Product Manager, student,
I will be blogging about my school discoveries throughout the year as well as new features and apps.
Plan, Write, Rewrite.....
An idea zooms into your brain. You create a PLAN. You Write and Write and Write and Rewrite. Then Rewrite and Proofread, And Write some more........
That is about the simplest way to summarize a way a writer thinks and writes. Though one thing about good writers that always stumps me is: "How do they perfect their writing craft?".
My mom is always telling me, "They write all the time, even if they don't feel in the mood." HOW is that possible??? It's like some miracle! They think of some good book idea, write up hundreds of pages that add up to a two inch thick book, publish it, and bada bing, bada BOOM, they have a book that is...PERFECTO!! :O *my jaw drops at the thought*
Yet the truth is, there is a bunch of planning that goes behind the making of a good book. But it's not just planning, there is also writing, proofreading, and simplifing that also plays a huge role in the writing process. It might sound tiresome, but it is necessary. : )
Planning is a very, very, very important part. Some people prefer to roughly write out the story, others write an outline, etc. It's all based on the person's preference. Planning is easy for me when I do it in my head. It's harder to then convert into an outline on a page.
For some reason, the communication between my head and pen gets distorted, or my fingers forget what they were supposed to write. It happens often. It's like a sudden case of writer's block that disappears in a couple seconds. :)
I asked my dad to create a new branch to the iPlan series called "iPlanToWrite". I knew other students out there probably didn't have a good writing foundation or planning skills. iPlanToWrite Essays, iPlanToWrite Reports, and iPlanToWrite Stories are tools students, teachers, adults,...everyone who enjoys writing, can use to help plan a report, essay, and story. The app isn't supposed to be a word processing tool but a planner to help organize resources, outlines, ideas, etc.
P.S. You've probably heard about the tragic event of Pepper(our dog)'s passing. He was a very happy dog and we weren't expecting him to pass away so suddenly. I miss him terribly and hold onto the many memories of him. I also have the strong reassurance that he is in heaven, playing with all the little children, and sharing his love with everyone. :)
