Part III: Improving Your Business Writing > Strengthening Your Memos

Chapter 9. Strengthening Your Memos

This section contains writing samples of memos that exemplify weaknesses and errors common in business writing. Some of the weaknesses are subtler than others. Please read each sample carefully and evaluate each stage: the before version, the corrected version, and the improved version.

Note how much more direct and clear the revised versions are. The sentences are brief and to the point, and the improved versions sound natural and conversational without being too informal.
