The names of stages of the writing process

  1. Planning: Think about what you want to write. Make a plan or outline.
  2. Drafting: Start writing your ideas in sentences and paragraphs. Don’t worry too much about mistakes now.
  3. Revising: Read what you wrote. Make changes to make it better. Check for mistakes and add more details.
  4. Editing: Look for errors in grammar, spelling, and punctuation. Fix them to make your writing clear and correct.
  5. Proofreading: Read your writing one more time. Check for any last mistakes before you share it.
  6. Publishing: Share your final, polished writing with others. This could be printing it, posting it online, or presenting it in class.
