Key Points

  • If you haven't already, take a writing class
  • Take a creative writing class; it forces effective, vivid writing
  • WRITE!!! The more you do it, the better you get.
  • Don't be afraid to ask for HELP.
  • The only person looking out for either you or your subordinate is YOU!
  • Use resources like Merriam-Webster
  • Use a spell checker (F7 in Office) 
  • Remember, writing doesn't have to win to REWARD!


  • Military Writing is different from Civilian writing. Wrong! Sentence structure, subject-verb-predicate, remains the same.
  • I don't have to write until I am a (fill in a Rank). Wrong! If you haven't learned by now, most people are lazy! If you can give your supervisor a package, group of accomplishments, etc. the better off you will be.
  • Each service branch has a different way to write. Wrong! Writing is writing. Each branch may look for a specific structure, but ultimately it follows Action-Impact.
  • You have to write to win.  Wrong! You write to acknowledge, reinforce, and/or reward behavior
