Off to the land of swirling kilts

Monday, 18 August 2014

This will be my last shedpost for about a week as I'm heading North to the Edinburgh Festival tomorrow and I'm going to be busy busy busy (and have no idea how good my wifi will be). Mind you, I don't get many responses to these shedposts either on here or on Twitter so I have no idea if they're actually entertaining or informing anyone!  

I'll leave you with a clip from an April 2009 episode of BBC Radio 4's The World Tonight in which I argue the need for police organisations to embrace plain English. At the time I had made the effort to complete Plain English Campaign's two year long diploma course. Just click on the little icon above.

If the purpose of writing is to communicate, shouldn't it be understandable after a single read?

See you all in a week.

Keep pledging and selling the book to everyone you know - we're over a third of the way there! :)

Likewise - sometimes a post is so complete that there's little more to be said :)

I agree with previous comments. I love your shed posts - you are so much better than others on Unbound. Keep the posts coming please and I will keep plugging the book. I'm so looking forward to reading it.
