: How to Write Clear, Readable, Effective Sentences that Readers Love!
Success in writing any type of formal correspondence for either
business or for the general public depends on the ability to write clear-cut, effective sentences. Without this ability you fail to achieve the primary purpose of a messagei.e., to convey your thoughts in a manner that the reader easily understands them.
The sentence is the basic unit of expression. Whenever we need to convey a thought to another person, we use the sentence. We cannot so much as e-mail a customer or correspond with our boss without forming a sentence in our minds.
Failure to decide in your mind precisely what you want to say, or failure to determine how
you want to say it, results in sentences that convey blurred and weak thoughts.
