There is something about well-written text that transcends the medium by which it’s presented. Whether it is text composed for an ancient scroll, an 18th-century novel, or an internet-age blog post, good writing demands attention. It provokes thoughts and stirs emotions; it answers questions and poses new ones; it expresses ideas in ways that are just not possible with the spoken word.
I Write Assistant is all about the written word. This is a site dedicated to writers looking to improve their craft. You do not have to be a professional writer to benefit, though many do, because the information found here is intended to help writers of all skill levels.
I Write Assistant wants to help you become a better writer of:
- blog posts and other personal articles
- business materials (letters, presentations, reports, etc.)
- advertising copy and other sales oriented materials
- novels, short stories, ebooks, etc.
- technical and instructional manuals
- white papers, position papers, etc.
In short, the goal of this site is to make you a better writer no matter what it is you write. Even if you just want to more effectively communicate through the written word on social media sites, you will find help here.
The Effectiveness of Good Writing
At the end of every day, anything that has been accomplished boils down to relationships. We have relationships with family members, co-workers, business owners, educators, and so on. And at the heart of those relationships is communication. Good writing is essential to that communication.
When you write a letter to a company you have done business with, you are communicating a message. When you write a blog post to update your friends about what’s going on in your life, you are communicating. The question is, are you communicating effectively?
Good writing is effective at communicating your message in a way that is easily understood. When you write well, you have the opportunity to influence other people by sharing your thoughts and knowledge. We want to help you do just that. I Write Assistant is here to help you become a good writer and a more effective communicator.
The late E.L. Doctorow once said, “good writing is supposed to evoke sensation in the reader – not the fact that it is raining, but the feeling of being rained upon.”
It matters not whether you are writing a technical piece, a novel, or a school assignment, good writing evokes some sort of response in the reader. If you are looking to become that kind of writer – a writer whose work evokes something in others – I Write Assistant is here to help.
