Chapter 13. Organization

This book presents and analyzes a number of various forms of technical writing. Each kind of document has its own unique organizational pattern. It is, however, useful to generalize about the organizational characteristics of technical documents.

First, effective technical writing is highly sectionalized. While information in an academic essay or a scene in a novel may be presented over a number of pages, technical documents are divided into easily identifiable sections. Good technical writers “chunk” information so that readers can easily digest the information section by section. Hence, technical writers use headings and white spaces to that the complex technical information presented becomes easily accessible to busy readers.
