Because everything is known by no one, and

experience is a great teacher of yesterday's ways,

a lifetime spent in learning is an invaluable asset

in an information age.

 

Although the writerís craft is complex, because it requires an extensive knowledge of the language and how it works, many of its principles are straightforward: donít write about what you don't understand, donít clutter documents with information the readers do not need or care to know, write clearly and concisely, and organize the material logically. In short, a document should make it easy for its readers to find what they need. Any document which fails this test is a failure.

The first task that any professional writer must undertake when given an assignment is getting to know the subject matter to be writen about. Without such knowledge, no composition can be organized in a meaningful way. The second task is to determine exactly what the client wants. The third task is to understand exactly when the task must be completed; the concept of deadline is the keystone in the arch of composition.

Knowledge, timeliness, and mastery of the writerís craft make up the foundation upon which all compositions are built. A failure to master the tools results in documents that are difficult and sometimes impossible to read. A failure to meet a deadline can render a document useless, and ignorance of the subject often results in mere gibberish.
