Drafting and Redrafting

Once you have constructed your essay plan, the next step is to then write the first draft of your essay. After you have done this, you may find that you need to redraft the essay a number of times to refine your structure, argument and use of evidence. This is an important process and represents the craft of writing well. In the process of drafting your essay, you may find that you have done insufficient reading in a particular area, and that you need to do more reading to strengthen the argument or evidence in a section of your essay. However, keep the scope of the essay and the word limit in mind, otherwise you may end up having not enough time to write your essay.
