Drafting a Long Email: A Useful Tool
Posted Apr 16, 2012, by Roy Speed
If all you write is one- or two-sentence emails -- you never have to write an email that's complex or lengthy -- skip this blog. But if you or your staff occasionally have to draft longer messages, running to several paragraphs, the eLearning nugget below may be for you.
Long emails can be confusing and difficult to read, not to mention painful and time-consuming to write. The eLearning module offered below introduces the Headline Outline, which is at once:
- A thinking/planning tool. It accelerates the writing and reduces the effort required to produce a complex message.
- A writing device. It enhances the clarity and impact of the email, often with dramatic improvement in the reading experience.
Tip to managers: Share this eLearning module with your staff.
