twelve simple rules for writing
Twelve Simple Rules for Writing

1

Double check company names, titles, and individuals’ names.

The spelling of words you are not sure of should always be looked up. Do not rely on your word processor’s spelling checker.

2

Twelve Simple Rules for Writing

Write the proposal and get away from it before proofreading. Give your mind some time away from the document so that it will be fresh when it is time to begin the editing process.

3

Proofread and edit for improvements rather than to simply catch mistakes. How can the message be improved in clarity and crispness?

4

Twelve Simple Rules for Writing

Repeat the proofreading process and, when possible, have a third party read for meaning, clarity, grammar, and spelling. A third set of eyes can find problems that the writer often overlooks. Don’t submit your first draft, as it won’t be your best.

5

Use hyphens to avoid confusion, but do not place a hyphen after an adverb that ends with ly.

6

Separate things in a series with a comma, and set off nonessential clauses with a comma.

7

Use that in restrictive clauses, use which in nonrestrictive clauses. (e.g., The sales quota that he announced is too low. He announced the new sales quota, which is too low.)

Use like for direct comparisons; use suchas for examples.
