I'm not 100% of which part you're talking about, but in my mind drafting is more like writing the first draft where free-writing is what you do with writer's block and you just keep writing no matter what comes in your head. If you get stuck you would repeat the last word until a new one comes along.

It's not FW vocabulary, It's just an ebook written by a specific person who has allowed FW members to use it, so I think you're getting caught up with it being under FW writing basics.

What I would interpret that to be is part of prewriting or getting ready to write your first draft. I think a lot of it would also depend on which genre you are writing and which ways work best for you as a writer.

There is no official FW vocabulary. There are things like "Throwing bricks" and stuff like that that have developed over time for things we do, however.

You have to take that Drafting withing context of the course as to what that writer means.

As for your second question, that would be called creating an outline and then writing a first draft.

Everyone here has their own style, so just write the way you want to write.

buckspub wrote:Ah. In pretty much each of the books here http://www.faithwriters.com/myaccount/F ... ourses.php the term "Drafting" is described, but I wasn't sure if it was the same as "freewriting" or not.

There seems to be an extremely wide degree of interpretation to the word (or process) of "freewriting", so I wanted to ask for the sake of clarification.

Please allow me to segue to my next question:

Using FW vocabulary, please define or describe this writing process and stage:

1. A writer creates a step-outine of the story from its beginning to end.
2. While using the step-outline as a guide, the writer "blurts-out" entire story while making no corrections along the way. No corrections means not modifying any scenes or dialogues, and not correcting any grammar.

So, using FW vocabulary, what would that process be called?

Thanks

With a short piece, like the FW Challenge Entries, most of mine, if not all, were written in one setting, and sometimes sit a day before I do a quick edit and submit - unfortunately, that allowed a few typos to still slip through from time to time lol.

And thanks for the head's up about the link. I had changed something in my sig and must have messed up that link, too :) It's all fixed now.

buckspub wrote:Oh, okay. That's helpful.

That means my End Times entry is something in-between pre-writing and draft-writing.

Except having created the step-outline of basic scenes, my entry was written in one sitting.

The only editing I performed was the deletion of scenes as the original draft was much, much longer (and there was even a corny, alternate-ending that cat-lovers may appreciate).

Thanks for the feedback.

Thanks. Got it. We were gone most of the evening at a Cub Scout party. Sent a PM back.
