Fiction writing: Peer-editing

Daily Prompt #39: Writing from a Word


What comes to your mind when you see this word?

Write for seven minutes.

First, you’re going to share your fiction with ONE peer and have them fill out a peer editing form.

Next, you’re going to get into groups based upon which aspect of your fiction you want the most help with. These are the five groups:

  • Plot
  • Character Development
  • Dialogue
  • Language (figurative and concrete language)
  • Conventions (spelling, grammar, punctuation)

In these groups, pass your papers around and focus ONLY on this aspect of the writing, taking the time to make notes directly on the paper, as well as the peer editing form.
