After thinking a great deal about the way in which I write, and the sequence of ideas that precede the manner in which I put words to “paper,” I have come to the conclusion that I need to work harder on how I write. I think that I need to focus on getting to the point right off the bat, rather than leading up with a whole bunch of qualifying statements.
In other words, I need to get to the darn point faster.
I have noticed a really bad tendency in my e-mails of late. I start off with all of these qualifying comments – considering that I don’t know this, having look at various options, etc. What I need to do is just start off with the point of my message, and then add in the reasons why I’m writing later.
This is my “almost done with the year” resolution. To get to the point.
