The Writing Process: Proofreading

It has been a long journey. John was given the assignment to write an essay of at least 800 words in which he analyzes and interprets Dorothea Lange's photograph Migrant Mother. John began with some prewriting activities, after which he began the drafting stage of the writing process. He then proceeded to what he discovered was the most time-consuming stage, revising. And now John has arrived at the the final stage. It is time for John to proofread his paper and to make final corrections.
