I started professional life as a technical writer and quickly learned that the ability to effectively communicate--and on deadline--is not related to genius. Many of the engineers I worked with were brilliant, but struggled when it came to expressing in writing what they knew. The same is true, I quickly found, in all levels of management.
I determined that a book that gives some simple answers, and lots of examples, would help with this sort of common "writer's block;" and for everyone it would serve to save lots and lots of time for all those writing tasks--business and personal--they faced. That was my motivation for writing How to Write It. And in refining that motivation and making it even more all-inclusive, I wrote a second edition, and now How to Write It Third Edition.
Along the way, I've written Personal Notes, then Write the Right Words, too, because I wanted to give voice to that mysterious element of self-discovery, reflection, and connecting that's possible--to both the writer and the recipient--through this very intimate way of communicating.
I've honed my own writing skills working as a journalist, a marketing and PR expert, CEO, friend, and relative in those daily demands of each. I often write and speak on matters of career, relationships, writing, lifestyle, and etiquette. For more information, please visit, www.SandraLamb.com.
