“The curriculum I was taught from (at school) could not have anticipated the variety of content types…use(d) today to communicate to audiences. Blogging was unheard of when I started at secondary school and e-books were non-existent. But even outside of a business context, I was never taught ways to help me write in a clear and convincing manner to enable me reach my intended audience.
in the strictest sense, merely stylistic preferences that certain groups of people, in the past, have favoured over others. These formalities are something that others and I feel get in the way of people writing –
· Starting sentences with conjunctions is fine
· Just writing about a series of events is not a story
· Experimentation is good
· Done is better than perfect
· Reading your writing back to yourself, out loud, can really help you edit it.”
