Getting to a Full Draft

(Adapted from Chapter 4: “Taking Shape,” Writing True, by Mimi Schwartz and Sondra Perl.)

Getting to a full draft.

Is your draft rich with ideas and images?

Did you elaborate on your notebook entry or idea generator, adding more sensory details, specific facts, possibly dialogue, and other examples?

Does your draft successfully move from beginning to end?
