The principles of powerful writing form four distinct phases. Each phase has its own added value in the overall writing process. Take a closer look at the four phases of the reflective cycle of powerful writing.
Powerful writing first necessitates a brainstorming session with yourself. You write down everything that comes to mind and that you have collected in the preparatory research: ideas, quotes, statements and so forth.
Powerful writing requires that you read and judge what you have written. Which arguments are good, and which ones are not so good? What is missing? What structure had your argument better adopt?
Powerful writing means focusing on writing once more. But writing now becomes, for the most part, rewriting. You have a clearer idea of your argument and the contributory parts.
You have now got a more or less structured argument, and the first attempt to put it into reasonable written language. You can start rewriting the text itself in this phase. You must be able to read the text as if it were written by someone else. You check the text in terms of at least three aspects: (a) logic, (b) readability and spelling and (c) layout.
