So, after handing out donuts to all 300 people at the Vermont Travel Industry Conference during my keynote address yesterday, I feel as if I showed up to lead today’s writing workshop empty handed.
Happily, I had a handful of Redpoint signature chocolate mice and five copies of my favorite pocket Thesaurus to hand out to all people who actively participated in the dialogue…but it still didn’t feel like enough.
So…I promised the attendees I’d post some essential writing tips and tools here this afternoon. (And if you weren’t there with us today, you can enjoy these with my compliments.)
Here are two PDFs to download:
These may not be as tasty and exciting as donuts, but they’ll be significantly more helpful when you are trying to craft a strategic document.
Though, I admit that a chocolate frosted donut (or 2…or 3) has helped me tackle a difficult writing project in the wee hours of the morning more than once. So if these tips aren’t doing the trick, put them aside in favor of donuts and watch the creativity flow like frosting.
