Explain the role of critical thinking in developing writing skills.

(10pts)
Jasmine's answers

Successful writing forms a relationship with the audience, reaching the reader on a deep level that can be dynamic and motivating. Sometimes our thinking is very abstract and becomes clear only through the process of getting thoughts down in words. Learning to write effectively involves reading, writing, critical thinking and hard work. You will discover that the power to write successfully rests in your hands. Excellent business writing can be inspiring, and it is importnt to not lose that sense of inspiration as we deconstruct the process of writing to its elemental components. In contrast, when writing fails to meet the audience's expectations, they'll move on.

How important is concentration in writing?

(10pts)
Jasmine's answers

Concentration is important in writing because the writing process requires effort, from overcoming writers block to intense concentration composing a document often involves. Errors, omissions, and unclear phrases may lurk within your document, waiting to reflect poorly on you when it reaches your audience. You should think of the review process as one that hardens and strengthens your documents, even though it may require the sacrifice of some hard-earned writing. General revision requires attention to content, organization, style, and readability. These four main categories should give you a template from which to begin to explore details in depth.
