Tasks on the Word Processor
A number of basic, yet time
consuming writing tasks become more convenient when a word processor
is employed. These include:
- Free writing - Word processors allow for quick
and convenient methods of free writing. As the writer types ideas,
they can be easily rearranged to form various lists and outlines.
- Working with a Text - The writer can make use of the
"cut" and "paste" functions to deal with
the organization of the text. In addition, topic sentences can
be isolated to form outlines, which can then be reorganized.
In addition, writers can quickly highlight or isolate specific
sections of text that need attention.
- Revising - word processors allow for quick
and neat revisions with regards to mechanics and other minor
corrections. Also, the need for lengthy marginal commentary is
greatly reduced, since much work can be directly implemented
into the text during the actual conference.
