The Link between Effective Writing and Vocation A vocation is a calling. It is profound, it is exciting, and it is dynamic. It gives freedom, and it is fun. Dr. Williams, as an educator, shows her freedom. She is not a slave to a book, or to a syllabus. She is disciplined, organized and free to truly teach. Has there been a time when you would sit down to write a letter and you felt discouraged? You just couldn't express yourself. Did you need to write a report or a memo and find yourself erasing it, scratching things out or hitting the delete button over and over? Many of us suffer this writing dilemma because we have had a bad education-schools were not up to par. Supervisors may have been too critical, busy and demanding, or burdened by their own responsibilities and lack of encouragement; which lead to our own writing hesitancy, fear and even skittishness. Then there's another story-"I'm too busy." There is denial of writing competence and resistance to change. In this new book Steps for Effective Writing, Dr. Catherine Williams, encourages you to write effectively. She helps you to get your ideas from "head to paper." She believes that life is a series of steps, and in Steps for Effective Writing, you will learn how to write clearly, concisely and correctly. Your writings will be coherent and complete. You will learn what "mapping" does, and how outlining shapes your written work. There are other valuable tips, tricks and tools in this book. The thing that I like about Steps for Effective Writing is that it inspires you to believe in yourself and in your work. This is because, Dr. Cathy, as she is affectionately called, is a child of the King and her book is a mandated product of her relationship with Him. Therefore, her life as a vocation is dynamic, exciting, passionate and disciplined. She and her students have fun while learning and, you too, will experience Steps for Effective Writing in a similar way. While doing so, you will become an effective writer in
