Writing for a change.

03 May

I believe that writing, like all communication, is about change.  When we are writing, we are trying to change something.

We are either trying to change:

  • Our reader’s information level on a subject;
  • Our reader’s attitude towards something/someone;
  • Our reader’s opinion;
  • Ourselves.

Part of the trick as a writer is to determine what change we are hoping for, and to work towards how we will achieve it.

What do you try and change with your writing?
