Evaluate- you can use an evaluation sheet to make sure you have good word choice, sentence fluency, and good conventions. Using this evaluation sheet will help your writing flow smoothly.
Revise- revising is when you make changes in your writing like changing words, moving sentences, taking things out, etc;.
Edit- to edit, fix things like end punctuation and capitalization.
Publish- this is when you share your writing with other people.
