1) Revision= change in content or arrangement of a piece of writing.

After a piece of writing is completed, revision is carried out so one makes sure there is nothing wrong or missing.

2) First draft= a first copy; preliminary version.

It is the equivalent to a demo in music: before releasing an album, a band records pre-versions of their songs. It is only after it that it will all be mixed and released. Writers do the same, that is, they write a first draft before the actual book is revised, proofread and released.

3) Prospective= possible or future.

That which is expected to happen. A prospective writer is someone who is expected to become a writer.

4) Style=  a writer’s characteristic way of expressing ideas or describing things.

Edgar Allan Poe’s style involves a lot of somber ideas and thoughts, which are conveyed in a lucid yet desperate manner.

5) Critique= written evaluation; critical essay.

It is an art term, meaning a critical analysis or a critical evaluation of a work of art.

6) Critic=  one who evaluates or judges each answer.

It is the person who carries out the critical evaluation mentioned above.

7) To Proofread= to examine a written or printed work for mistakes and typing errors.

It is essential, since human faults always happen. During proofreading, subtle mistakes are usually found, such as misspelled words and commas put in the wrong place.

8) Figure of Speech= an imaginative use of language.

It is when language is used in a non-literal way. We are talking about metaphor, analogy, personification, hyperbole, etc.

9) Outline= an organization plan for writing.

It is a preliminary plan for writing. It is a pre-writing strategy, which contains the main topic, the plot, the characters, etc.

P.S.: letter C- C) the central idea of the story- was left without a matching word. Therefore, I will take the liberty to say the central idea of the story is its theme.
