Five Simple Steps To Becoming A Good Writer
In my opinion, it is simply common courtesy in communicating to do so as efficiently and correctly as possible. In conversation, for instance, we don't shout, we don't look away, we don't mumble. In writing, we try not to waste people's time with misspellings, poor grammar or rambling on. Every unnecessary word makes communicating more difficult. If we're not sure how to spell a word, it's thoughtful to look it up, and correct it, rather than to put that responsibility on the reader. Everyone makes mistakes, but it's incumbent upon us to make our best effort to be correct. It's thoughtful, it's polite, it's professional. Good writing makes for good reading.
