Looks like good advice about the editing stage. I have a question
about the earlier stages.

When I'm working with a client on a white paper, there are earlier
review stages. I get buy in for the title, target audience, word
count, etc. Before I start writing, I create a proposed outline and
there is considerable back-and-forth revision before it is finalized
and the actual writing begins. In some cases, if I'm not clear on the
desired tone, I get a review of the introduction and perhaps the first
section to make sure I'm headed in the right direction.

Is there a process in place for that level of review earlier? I've
found that it saves a lot of misunderstandings and time.
