I used to _6__ this important step, but I have  slowly come to realise that it may be _7_ most important part of writing. Besides, correcting _9_,  I cross out unnecessary words, and I 10 find myself adding other words. Depending on the _11of my composition, I may do this three or four times.

Another 40 percent or _13_ is used in thinking  and coming up with a story, with the _14_ used in doing revision.
