Overview

The Writing Process is a practical, plain English guide for people who are not experienced writers of non-technical prose. By diligently applying the principles outlined here, you will extend your writing capability towards a professional level. The examples in this eBook relate to computer user manuals, however the principles apply to all kinds of non-technical writing.

Clear, easy-to-understand writing can be achieved by following the simple principles outlined here. While these principles can be simply expressed, it can take a lifetime of effort fully master them. Not to worry though, the sooner you start, the sooner you will notice an improvement.

A note about simplicity; the Physicist Albert Einstein once famously observed that the greater the truth, the more simply it can be expressed. You know you have achieved mastery over a subject when you are able to explain it in simple terms.
George Orwell demonstrated consummate mastery over the process of writing, and as a result, he expressed the truth about writing in the simplest possible terms.

This eBook is a summary of Orwell’s principles of clear writing. I (the author of this eBook) have been making a living as a writer since the early 1990’s. These principles have been the bedrock upon which a writing career spanning decades has been based. I am enormously grateful to Orwell for providing them. Let them work for you too.
