Beyond the red pen

Writing

An explanation of the types of writing that gushes out of my brain into the keyboard:


Copywriting
Jazzing up text to sell a product, service or policy.


Technical Writing
Clear and accurate instructions...unlike ones to assemble flat-pack tables.


Reviewing
An article format that gives an insight into a performance, artwork, movie etc. Even the dodgy plays I've been to, I'm fair in my judgment.


Brochures
A bit like copywriting but more informative and formal.


Articles
Informative and/or opinion pieces about miscellaneous topics, usually around 800 words.


eLearning Storyboards
Writing scripts for eLearning courses using best practice and adult learning principles (I can also develop in Captivate and Articulate).


Writing for the web
No, it's not just copy and paste from existing doco. Web writing is about chunking text under headings and minimising content plus more!


Formatting

Do you have a Word file that is full of dodgy styles and looks like a dog's breakfast? I can fix it and make it look pretty! I know Word back to front and have seen many grrrr documents.

Hahaha this keyboard is far too clean to be mine... plus I don't paint my nails.
