Finally you polish. Now you are reading for flow or musicality.You are cutting out superfluous ideas and words.
This is long way to write.
THE SHORT WAY TO WRITE The short way is to sift and prioritize all your notes in your mind ie you turn on your thinking tool. The key idea will pop into view, and hey presto, you begin writing about that one. You have a feeling for what comes next and what after that. You understand how to prioritize your ideas. Soon with a bit of jiggling ideas around page, your story has a beginning, a middle and an end.
You can teach yourself short way by writing long way, again and again. Or by turning copy round in middle of night for an 07.00am deadline as I often had to do as a newspaper feature writer.
“When we encounter a natural style, we are astonished and delighted: for we expected to see an author, and we find a man.” Blaise Pascal. Quoted with thanks to John R. Trimble, Writing with Style published by Prentice Hall.
