I write down all of the information I believe the reader needs, then organize the information in a way that makes sense and is easy to follow. After a few minutes (or hours depending on the document), I reread the information and cut out any unnecessary details.

That sounds like a very good approach, Allisa. Thanks for sharing it.



I always tell people to start by asking themselves: "What is the one thing I want people to do as a result of this piece of writing". Followed by "Now, what do they need to know to do it?"

Great questions for writers to ask themselves. Thanks, Clare.
