Preface

You may not be a professional writer. Yet no matter what type of profession you are in, chances are you will need to write something on a professional level at one time or another. This handy e-book includes tips that will help you improve your writing (and actually get your writing done faster and easier) no matter what type of writing you need to do.

How to Use This E-book:

Start with the first section of this e-book. It gives a good overview of the types of things you can do to improve your overall writing skills.

Next, move on to any of the sections that give tips for the specific type of writing you wish to do or need to do at the moment. For example, if you need to put together a resume, read the section with tips for resume writing. If you need to write a letter of complaint, skip to that section for tips to get your letter started.

Each section of this e-book also includes a checklist. It’s a good idea to read the checklist for the type of writing you need to do even BEFORE you start to write, then read and follow the tips. Use the checklist again, after you’ve written your material, to make sure what you’ve written is the best you can make it.

Each section of this e-book ends with a few resources you might find helpful if you need additional tips or other information for the specific type of writing you wish to do.

Sidney T. Howard ★★★★★

This is one e-book that has made me see writing to be as easy as pie. Some people find it hard to write because they feel like they don't know how. This is the answer. This isn't just for those who consider writing as a profession but to those who find it or want it as a hobby. Learned a lot. :)

Donncha Hughes ★★★★★

This is a really good book. I am a trainer. I help people to write business plans and other documents. This is a fantastic resource book that I will be recommending to training participants. I like the structure of the book which focuses on the different reasons why people need to write - for books, articles or the web etc. The links to additional resources are also very useful. My big recommendation for attendees to my training used to be to write short sentences. Having read Suzanne's book I will be updating this advice to remind people about the importance of short sentences but to include a mix of sentence length. I think that this book gets the balance correct in outlining the correct use of the English language without going overboard in terms of providing a lesson on grammar. I now know about the 'participle phrase' (p.11). Overall, I agree that one must write with the reader in mind. This point is made in abundance by the author.
