Key Points to Writing
- WRITE!!! The more you do it, the better you get.
- Ask for HELP, the only person looking out
for #1 is you.
- Use a spell checker. F7 works well in MS Word.
- Use Merriam-Webster Online
to improve your vocabulary.
The following Example has been taken out of IMT viewer so the formatting
might be off. I did not changed mission information,
only names to protect myself and the
people I have received the information from. If
you have anything you would like to
submit, please do so.
you have found this information useful, please let me know. Everyone of these
letters has taken considerable amount of time to put together. Please
treat yourself to something special from one of the ads on the page. We
will both get something out of it. (All money gathered pays for
hosting fees and domain fees. HONESTLY, when I see money come in it also
prompts me to work harder on the site.)
I will attempt to give a
little insight to the entire process if I know it.

Very Good package.
There were no spelling
mistakes, one minor
numbering issue, (Numbers under 10 spelled out unless they deal with
time or follow numbers larger than 10 in the same bullet), and one
abbreviation not spelled out
The two errors are very minor for a quarterly package since space is at a
premium. I personally like the last bullet. the individual read a
CSAF recommended book. This says
a lot about him. If you wonder why I say this, have you read any of the
CSAF books? why not? Hence,
it does make a good bullet.
