The editing phase of the writing process is important because it
Weegy: Editing is the stage in the writing process where the writer makes changes in the text to correct errors (spelling, grammar, or mechanics) and fine-tune his or her style. [ Having revised the draft for content, the writer s task is now to make changes that will improve the actual communication with the reader. Depending on the genre, the writer may choose to adhere to the conventions of Standard English. These conventions are still being developed and the rulings on controversial issues may vary depending on the source. A source like Strunk and White s Elements of Style, first published in 1918, is a well-established authority on stylistic conventions.[8] A more recent handbook for students is Diana Hacker s A Writer s Reference.[9] An electronic resource is the Purdue Online Writing Lab (OWL), where writers may search a specific issue to find an explanation of grammatical and mechanical conventions.[10] ] User: Identify what would happen if a writer skipped the editing phase.
