Nathan Bingham has posted these ten points about writing gleaned from a presentation by Greg Bailey, Director of Publications for Reformation Trust Publishing

  1. Know what you’re trying to say.
  2. Never assume your audience knows what you’re trying to say.
  3. Find a creative way to approach / introduce what you’re trying to say.
  4. Write an initial draft quickly.
  5. Be a great revisor.
  6. Get rid of unnecessary words.
  7. Maintain an active voice.
  8. Use simple sentences. “Simple sentences are beautiful.”
  9. Let it rest. “Sleep on it.”
  10. Let it go. “Let it do its job, for good or bad.”
