Every student, business owner, and professional is also in practice a writer who produces papers, memos, e-mails, proposals, reports, and dozens of other written documents. But did you know that everything you write is also a chance to make a good impression? Powerful Writing Skills is a concise guide to writing with quick answers to common questions about dozens of writing topics. With short and well-organized chapters, the book includes useful rules for writing better paragraphs and sentences; tips for improving your spelling, punctuation, and proofreading skills; guidelines for choosing words that best convey your meaning; and helpful advice for the business writer. You'll learn that- Long words show your reader down. With short words, your readers will understand your messages faster and more easily. Nouns are where the information is. Adjectives are indispensable to speech, but there isn't one that can replace even the weakest noun. You should sound like yourself. The closer your writing is to the way you speak, the more powerful, lively, engaging and "correct" your writing will be. Simple and easy to use, Powerful Writing Skills is a handy desk reference that you'll turn to again and again for getting it right- whatever you write.
