Powerful Writing

Do you ever start writing, thinking you know exactly what you want to say – and then go off on a tangent and end up in the weeds?

I do. That’s when I remember to get out one of my favorite tools – the Writing Purpose Worksheet. It helps me map out my points and make sure that I’m actually making the impact that I want to.

Use this handy tool when you’re planning a blog post, an article, a chapter, or an entire book. I’ve even used it to develop speeches and presentations.

Please let me know how you’re using it!
