INTRODUCCIÓN
Escribir nos ayuda a pensar, a descubrir nuevas ideas, a organizar nuestro pensamiento, a explicarnos mucho mejor. Es una competencia clave para nuestro desarrollo personal e intelectual.

El proceso de escritura es una serie de pasos que normalmente se siguen para escribir un texto. Sólo en casos muy raros se escribe un texto perfecto al primer intento. Esto es muy poco común.Estos pasos son:
1. Pre-Escritura
2. Borrador
3. Revisión
4. Edición
5. Publicación  

THE WRITING PROCESS
The Writing process is both a key concept in the teaching of writing and an important research concept in the field of composition studies.

What do we mean by the writing process?
When you sit down to write, whether a letter, an essay, or a short story, you gothrough a series of steps that involves brainstorming, drafting, revising, and editing. Every writer has a unique writing process so that there is no one single approach to producing a text but multiple ways in which a writer may arrive at the final product. You may or may not go through all of these steps in this order, but more than likely you will repeat some or all of them as you generate newideas, modify your thesis, or reorganize your paragraphs. Knowing and putting into practice the different steps of the writing process will help you produce well-written, effective texts that clearly communicate your intended message to your reader.
Writing is generated from the pre-writing stage. The writing that takes place in the drafting stage is like free writing in that the student shouldnot yet be focusing on spelling errors and so forth, but it is, at the same time, very different. Drafting takes place after the “well” is full. During pre-writing, the student should have generated ideas and data that may now be applied to the writing process. If a student has an unusual amount of difficulty creating a draft, he/she may need to do more pre-writing. It's important to stress that thethree parts of the writing process are more circular than sequential. For example, pre-writing techniques may be needed again during the drafting stage and even during the revision/re-writing stages. Fortunately, computers help to decrease students' anxiety during the writing process because students know that they can quickly delete, re-arrange, re-order, and refine their writing once they arefinished.
Generally the writing process is seen as consisting of five stages:

Pre-writing
What is Pre-Writing? As its name implies, pre-writing is any writing you do before you start writing, is the first stage of the writing process and the point at which we discover and explore our initial ideas about a subject. Prewriting helps us to get our on paper, though not usually in an organizedform, and brainstorm thoughts that might eventually make their way into our writing. Listed below are some of the most common types of prewriting techniques. You should become familiar with all of these and figure out the one that works best for you.

What Can I Do During Pre-Writing? You can do just about anything you want. You can draw. You can read. You can make notes. You can scribble randomthoughts. You can make a web or a story map. You can do anything that will help you come up with good ideas for writing. It doesn’t really matter what you do, as long as it involves turning on your brain and thinking about your topic. Then, just write down whatever pops into your noggin. As you begin to put ideas down on the page, see if you can organize them in some way. Take your time. There’s norush. Time spent pre-writing is time well spent.

Ideas and Inspiration
Ideas are all around you. If you want to write but you don't have any ideas, try:
* Using writing prompt to get you started.
* Writing about incidents from your daily life, or childhood.
* Keeping a notebook of ideas – jotting down those thoughts that occur throughout the day.
* Creating a vivid character,...
