Writing

This core phase is similar to the software coding stage. Writing is an essential part of DDLC. The quality of the document depends on the writing style and the flow of the content. You must prepare a documentation plan before embarking on the journey of writing. Use all the information and resources gathered during the previous phases to write accurately.

The two major aspects of writing that you must consider include perspective and usage and process. You must choose the right perspective while presenting the information. Perspective refers to the approach towards the task on hand. It also refers to the understanding of the context of the document and writing accordingly. Usage and process refers to the usage of words and the process used in writing. You need to consider various aspects such as the usage of American and British English, Style Guides, and the appropriate method of development.
