Reading Response 2

In chapter 5, Knight focuses on how our writing is mostly too much talking and not enough of getting to the point. A lot of writers, when writing essays by a due date, focus on the word count instead of the quality of the piece. This is why journalistic writing is preferred among writers, because it gets right to the point of the story and doesn’t usually have a required word count.

Chapter 6 focuses on the use of the active voice over the passive voice to get your point across stronger. The active voice uses more action words to emphasize the action being done. It is important to know when to use active voice over passive voice and how to recognize them both in a text.
