I wrote a short piece for the Law Society Gazette in April, listing 5 good writing habits. Straight away, one reader emailed me back, suggesting that writing in the active voice deserves a place in the top 5. I agree, although the others are strong contenders too. Perhaps we need 6 good writing habits. And why stop at 6? Everything can always be improved.
If you are wondering “What else made the cut, if active voice didn’t?”, you might like to read the whole article: 5 writing habits every lawyer needs. And let me know which ones you would add.
