Reading Response #2

Ch. 5 is a important chapter. It takes about how people like to talk to much. In journalistic writing you want to get the point across and nothing else. I feel we’ve been engineered through our writing career to fill our writing with as much extra as possible. Thats one of my favorite parts of writing this way because id also encounter coming up short on the length but having my point across. This happens to be the only time I’m short on length however.

Ch. 6 dives into active and passive voices in writing. Ive always struggled with proper uses of each, so this chapter was very useful to me. Active voice pairs well with Ch. 5 as it allows you to speak right to the point. This allows a more direct way of communicating while using confidence to get your message across.
