Process for Writing Materials
The first step is to gather information about the project. I gather information in the following ways:
I talk with the prospective client to obtain preliminary information about the project, which allows me to develop a quote. T
After the client and I sign an agreement and the deposit is received, I ask the client a series of questions to gather more detailed information about the content of the material. T
The client may also send project notes or examples.
Depending on the project, all of the information needed to write the material is gathered from the client. I also conduct research as needed to gather information that will be used to write the material.
The more information and ideas received from the client, the less research I will need to conduct.
After I have collected information from the client and conducted research (if necessary), I write a first draft of the material.
Once I have completed the first draft of the material, I send it to the client for feedback. The client lets me know what changes are necessary. I make the changes and send them a second draft. We continue to revise the document until we have developed a final draft.
It usually takes one or two rounds of revisions to create a final draft.
