Usage

A guide to “good” writing.


Usage

  • 1. Starts with well-developed content.

    • Personal, well thought-out

    • The reader gets a sense that the author is invested in the topic

  • 2. Needs specific examples

    • Facts need to be concrete and relevant

    • Don’t wander

  • 3. Form is important

    • Writing must be organized and clear so the reader can follow the ideas presented

    • Must be unified between content and form

      • If colloquial…..loose

      • If formal…..structured and sensibly ordered


Usage

  • 4. Needs a consistent and definable voice

    • Must be unique to the author

    • Must be active, not passive (natural, unless…)

    • Must be varied in structure

  • 5. Spelling, Grammar and Punctuation are very important!

    • Mistakes distract

    • Mistakes ruin your credibility
