You're not alone• Most people experience some form of writer's block when faced with a particularly important or large- scale job. • Why? Most researchers who study the act of writing currently believe that many of our writing problems are caused by our ap- proach. They say that all writers -- whether they are conscious of it or not -- go through this five- stage process when they write: pre-writing, writing, revising, ed- iting and proofreading. The ma- jority of'writing problems are caused, the researchers say, when .the writer tries to do all of the steps at once. Let's take a closer look at each of these steps: ' Pre-writing This is the stage where you decide what you're going to say. You'may write or review yodr note#, assemble facts, organize you~thoughts, establish your goals, 'or' draft an outline. The more you have to say, the more important this stage is. Generally, the more time you spend here, the less time you will spend in the revising stage• Writing After you know in broad terms what you need to say, you can start saying it.
