Why is writing in a natural, conversational tone difficult for many people?

September 9, 2011

Critical Thinking pg. 45 Chapter 2

Writing in a natural, conversational tone is not difficult; however, many people who are not used to writing or are not well educated, tend to unconsciously write sloppy, unprofessional.  With the increase use of instant messages, e-mail, many people do not want to take the time to complete sentences, instead, they utilize abbreviations, slang, sentence fragments and overuse expressions.  
Some writers are too casual, others are overly formal; nevertheless, professional conversational tone can be achieved by improving proper writing skills. To project a professional image, we must strive to use a warm, friendly tone that sounds professional and mature.  We are not perfect, but we can strive for perfection in the workplace.
