Writing as Revision.
Della-Piana, Gabriel M.; Endo, George T.
This proposal for a longitudinal experimental study with a treatment intervention focuses on the process of writing as revision. Revision refers to the process which occurs prior to and throughout the writing of a work, rather than the final editing. According to this process, the writer goes through five stages: preconceptions concerning style and intention, discrimination as to what the work does or suggests, dissonance or lack of congruence between intention and result, accompanying tension, and, finally, revision. Obstacles may occur at any one of these stages. The treatment interventions focus on removing obstacles to revision and include journal writing, verbalization of experience, and editing the work of other writers. Predictor variables and tests in writing and poetry as process and product are also discussed. (LL)
