Writing is complex because the process of transferring our thoughts to the blank page is not as obvious as we might wish.
As in any form of communication, being understood is not guaranteed. When speaking, we repeatedly check to ascertain that our message is being conveyed as we intended it: “right?” “d’ya see what I mean?”
In writing, the same function must take place, but we cannot make such direct inquiries, nor can we rely on body languge, intonation, or similar cues. Other methods are used to constantly engage the reader and ensure clear and effective communication.
To accomplish the goal of creating a comprehensible text requires several steps. The first of these, which precedes the actual writing, is deciding on the focus of your message, its purpose and its target audience. Next comes the organization of the text, planning its components, determining the optimal order in which to present the components, and identifying useful links for creating a smooth transition from one component to the next.
