I would definitely change this and add “1) Define your audience and purpose” before writing even the first word. Without this, the ten steps listed could easily produce a well sequenced, but meaningless, document.

Hi Mary,

Good point. I’ll update this later on as a few others have emailed in some ideas on how and where to change things.

Thanks for dropping by,
