Hi Oleks,

These are such important questions! Sometimes writers forget to answer one of them and then they end up becoming confused.

I only have one other comment, in addition to the others

1. the algorithm above - the word "algorithm" is usually used when referring to the processes or  sets of rules to be followed in calculations or other problem-solving operations, especially by a computer. Therefore, in this context, the word "algorithm" sounds a bit strange to me, though it is certainly not grammatically wrong! I would instead suggest the following : the writing process above

Hi Ed! Thank you! I think you are right, and the "writing process above" will be more appropriate.
