Additions:
Writing the wiki also adds new practices: using heads and subheads, working within the structural layout, starting new spaces, establishing webs of hyper-linked text. The wiki encourages creation of linked topics. Matter of fact, writing on a wiki demands creating the node and being aware of links which shows how EverythingIsIntertwingled on the wiki. Linking within the wiki, linking to outside pages, and adding images--each of these provide new options for invention and development, articulation and organization.

Additions:
Writing the wiki calls for experimental writing and ultimately creating the CollaborativeWriting process. We might try a paragraph but find it cumbersome. Another wiki writer may move the paragraph into a list. Maybe that will work well. If it does not, another wiki writer, is sure to try splitting the list into separate, smaller paragraphs. Somewhere along the way, the experiments begin turning out better. The wiki begins to grow in knowledge and clarity.

Additions:
There is little reason to bemoan the move from paper to wiki. All writing practices are not homogenous. You probably draw on a variety of conventions when composing, depending on the rhetorical situation. And you have surely adapted your practices to new situations already. Didn't email changed the way you wrote to family and friends? And texting? So will wikis.

Writing the wiki draws on traditional writing practices: making notes, brainstorming, roughing things out, organizing, revising. However, to get the most out of a wiki, we adapt these practices. We work them together. We collaborate, change, and rewrite with one other.

There's little reason to bemoan the move from paper to wiki writing. Writing practices are not homogenous: You probably have a variety of practices you draw on when composing, depending on the rhetorical situation for writing. And you've adapted your practices to new situations already. When you started using email, you changed the way you write. Change is nothing new, and this is not an earthshattering change.

Writing in a wiki means revisiting the processes and practices we learned for traditional composition. Wiki writers adapt, create, rethink, and experiment with the hard-won practices of old. (Need to fit this in: Even more, writing on a wiki demands creating the node and being aware of links.)
The beauty of the wiki, the ways it supports writing, is that the writing space is more powerful than pen and paper, even more than a word processor. The wiki allows - encourages - creating linked topics on the fly, linking out, structural formatting, adding images... more. Each of these gives you new options for invention and development, articulation and organization.
===Rethink===
These characteristics may sound too much, or useless. And you may have to rethink traditional hard-won practices and learn some new ones to become efficient. But the power of the characteristics of the wiki will become apparent as you work with a wiki for a while.

balance the treatment of writing process and new choices and strategies of writing writers have to learn. the big deal is not so much process as practices.

In the same way, to get the most out of a wiki, we adapt practices to the writing technology - and create new ones. Writing the wiki starts with and draws on traditional writing practices: making notes, brainstorming, roughing things out, organizing, revising...
And it adds a few new ones: using heads and subheads, structural layout, using, creating new spaces, creating webs of hyper-linked text.
