The Stages of the Writing Process
Stage 1: Analysis of the writing situation
Identify document type, subject, and purpose
Identify all readers and context of use (why and how will they read my document?)
Stage 2: Planning and Researching
Collect the information needed by all readers
Consider the logical presentation of the information to your readers
Stage 3: Drafting
Collectively or individually draft your document; document when necessary
Stage 4: Revision
Revisit the second stage: is all content included in your document? Is it presented logically?
Stage 5: Editing
Consider multiple edits for different purposes (e.g. grammar, typos, spelling, consistency, etc.)
