Sail the ‘7 Seas’ … again

Please excuse the bogus link in last month’s Quickie. Here’s the short piece you should have seen with a properly working link:

Effective Workplace Writing should pass the ‘7 Cs Test.’  Is it:

Clear vs. confusing, vague, contradictory

Conversational vs. stuffy, pretentious, nfriendly, mechanical

Concise vs. wordy, rambly, repetitious, redundant

Consistent vs. variety for its own sake

Credible vs. lame because of lack of support or focus

Compelling vs. boring, trite or bland

*  Correct vs. factual, spelling and grammatical errors.
