Better Business Writing – Engage readers – Tighten & brighten – Make your Case

By Bryan A. Garner

 

Chapter 6

IMPROVE WHAT YOU HAVE WRITTEN

Once you’ve written a complete draft, you’ll revise first and then edit. Revising is like re-thinking the floor plan. Editing is more a matter of fine tuning sentences and paragraphs.

 

Allow yourself ample time to revise and edit your work

Consider your draft in its entirety. Take a fresh look at your content and structure. Have you said everything you need to and in the most effective way.

 

Chapter 7

USE GRAPHICS TO ILLUSTRATE AND CLARIFY

Make sure your graphics illustrate something discussed in the text

Place them near the text they illustrate

Use legend and keys that readers can easily grasp

    Does your blog have a contact page? I’m having trouble locating
    it but, I’d like to shoot you an e-mail. I’ve got some ideas for your blog you might be
    interested in hearing. Either way, great site and I look forward to seeing it grow over
    time.
