People often ask me to summarise my top tips for improving their writing. What are the shortcuts that can transform it fast?
I tried to keep it to five, but in the end identified seven that take writing to the next level.
Here are the top 7 writing tips from my book rhetorica® — a toolkit of 21 everyday writing techniques:
TOP TIP #1: Write for your reader
TOP TIP #2: Honour the three steps of the writing process
TOP TIP #3: Set time aside to plan
TOP TIP #4: Nail your objective
TOP TIP #5: How to write concisely
TOP TIP #6: Write plain English
TOP TIP #7: Read your writing out loud (R.O.L.)
To read the book in full, you can purchase it from Amazon here.
I hope you found my tips useful. I also came across an article, Technical Writing Tools: The Ultimate Choice of 83 Experts by Ferry Vermeulen, which shares the technical writing tools that are favoured most by 80 experts. Give it a read.
