August 19, 2011 4:32am CST
If you are considering making a career of writing ot heck even if you're just writing a blog, here are 10 ways with a little help from one of my favorite author William Zinsser. 1. Simplify and be objective. Learn to edit yourself. 2. Be yourself when you write. Don't say things in writing that you wouldn't comfortably say in conversations. 3. Write about what you know. 4. Don't overwhelm the reader with too much info. Use short sentences to deliver impact. 5. Avoid Idioms. They sound clumsy and unreal. 6. Punctuate Simple. Read it again and edit. 7. Avoid new words and expressions. Be clear with your writing and what you want to say. 8. Always put an image in the mind of your reader. 9. Have fun. If you are not having fun in writing, maybe you should find a different game. 10 Remember the 3 characteristics of good writing clear, visual and uses language logically
