Generally, drafting is defined by notions of foundation and organization, as well as by realness, which is the process of making something actual, and of declaration, meaning announcing the existence of a record as a piece of writing. All drafting involves initiating actions, establishment strategies, decision-making and a writer’s sense of satisfaction, as well as incompleteness. Creative writing comprises a distinctive kind of drafting, which can be referred to as ‘dynamic drafting’. Dynamic drafting is both an observable element of creative writing practice and a tool for considering our own, individual creative writing activities and for assessing the success of those activities. Dynamic drafting comes about through a heightened interaction between the imagination and the intellect. Dynamism is not only about actions; it also influences feeling and thinking and the exploration and foundation of knowledge. Creative writing’s dynamic drafting is representative of its particular engagement with the world, both in what it offers to our sense of understanding and how it connects us.
