  • Forming intentions - The writer clarifies the purpose for writing, gathers information, and tests ideas. It involves thinking, talking, remembering, reflecting,
     searching for, and organizing information.

  • Composing and drafting - the writer is getting thoughts and ideas down on paper, rereading, reorganizing, and revising.

  • Correcting and publishing - the writer corrects, proofreads, checks spelling, grammar, punctuation, and neatness. The text is ready for others to read.

  • Outcomes - The writer shares published work, gets responses from readers, and reflects on their own words.
