Three Rules of WritingJoshua gives us three rules that will help any student of writing become more successful.

Three Rules of Writing
by Joshua

      Writing is a job that requires tremendous effort, including following the commonly shared writing rules. Writing rules are diverse, but I will restrict the rules to the following three rules that I think the most important. Writing should contain enough information, be consistent from beginning to end, and follow accepted rules of grammar.

     First of all, writing should contain enough information for the reader to understand the idea you are trying to communicate. If the information is insufficient, the readers may get confused, and sometimes get bored. Then, the writing will end up being read by no one.

     Consistency of the writing makes the readers persuaded by the writer while lack of consistency reduces the credibility of the writer.

     Finally, following the rules of grammar enhances the readability of the writing. In other words, it delivers the precise meaning of the writing to the readers.

     In conclusion, the primary purpose of writing is to make the readers happy.
