Among the world’s great mysteries, three in particular stand out:
- What is “dark energy” and why is it speeding up expansion of the universe?
- Who really built the Great Sphinx of Giza?
- Why are technical folk, as a general rule, such poor writers?
The first two are puzzling, yes, but the third is an absolute head-scratcher. After all, good communication is mostly about structure, and structure should appeal to someone with a technical backgroundas should the idea of applying basic principles… a fundamental aspect of good writing. Add to that the fact they’re typically smart and like to learn, and you have yourself a genuine conundrum.
So is there a secret to improving their writing skills? And does anyone know it?
There is and we do.
