Do you believe you're a good writer? (Be honest, would your boss agree?)
Take the following quiz to find out:
  1. Have you ever been in a hurry, and can’t remember whether to use “it’s” or “its”? “Who” or “whom”?
  2. Would you doubt someone who said there is a way to write a useful outline that is not a soul-crushing experience?
  3. Is the phrase "align grammar to the story" unfamiliar to you?
  4. Does it surprise you that sometimes it’s best to add words when you're trying to be concise?
  5. Do you tend to avoid varying the structure and length of your sentences?
  6. Do you wish it were easier to format your written material so it’s easier for people to read?
  7. Has anyone gone ballistic on you after totally misreading the tone you intended in an email?
  8. When you really need to be tactful, do you ever struggle to choose just the right words?
  9. Would it surprise you that persuasiveness can be achieved in part by choosing your words to match the personality of your reader?
  10. Do you fear your writing is preventing you from being promoted, or even getting a job?
If you answered 'Yes' to any of these questions, take a look at Hit the Job Writing. You’ll be surprised by how many easy ways there are to improve your writing at work.
