I’m currently putting the finishing touches on my new book entitled The Creative Business of Screenwriting based on the seminar I give at NYWIFT twice a year (Next class: April 12, 2010! CLICK HERE to register.)
As part of my research for the book, I have been reading more and more about communicating effectively in the business world.
In this week’s issue of SCOPE magazine I found an article about a company called 37Signals that makes web-based efficiency tools used by Amazon, Twitter and Hulu. The article lists their 10 new rules for succeeding in business.
Number 2 on their list is: Hire The Better Writer – Clear Writing is a Sign of Clear Thinking.
I couldn’t agree more.
If you’re writing a screenplay, a novel, a business plan or even just an email, take a moment to think it through first. Decide where want to go and how you’re going to get there.
