Lack of student access to computers in the classroom (or lack of adequate computer lab access) has limited the computer's usefulness in the writing process to the "publish" stage. Although publishing an attractive, professional-looking document as a result of the writing process is important to the development of good writers, it should not overshadow the real need-developing thoughtful writers who can appropriately use technology during the revision process. Teachers of writing understand that the real work of the writing process comes during the creative brainstorming, drafting, editing, and re-writing stages. Handheld PDA devices may hold the key to integrating technology into the creative work of the writing process.
