My “Successful with Words,” column in The Big Blend Magazine this month covers writing a letter to speak your mind.

It has a lot of tips that I think you’ll find beneficial. I forgot to mention the importance of not using email slang or abbreviations. They are not always clear to the sender and they show you are short-cutting the importance of what you are trying to get across.

That may seem to be a generational issue. But nonetheless, it is true.

Here is the link. I hope you like the column.
