THE
ELEMENTS
OF
GOOD
WRITING
Not
everyone
is
a
naturallygiftedwriter.
Writing
isa
skill that
can
be
practiced
and
mastered.
In
many
ways,
it
is
likedriving
a car.
If
youhaveever
driven
in
anothercountry,
you
know
that
some
of the
rules
of
the
road may be
different.
Just
as
the
rules
for
driving
differ fromcountry
to
country
the
conventions for
writing
maychange
from
language
to
language.
\Triting
in
a
different
language
involves
more
than
mastering its vocabulary
and
grammar.
Language,
including
written
language,
is a
reflection
of the
thought
pattemsof native
speakers.
In
order
to
write well
in
a
different
language,
it
is
important
to
understand
the
way
native
speakers
of
that
language
organize
their
thoughts.
That
is
why
it
rarelyworks
to write
something
in
your
native
language
and
then
translate
it
into
English.
The
wordsmaybe
in
English,
but the
logic,
organization,
and
thought patremsreflect
those
ofyour
native
language.
To
write
effectively
in
English,
youmust
conform
tothe
accepted
pattems
of
organization. Practicing
these
pattems
will
put
you
on
the
road
to becoming
a
better writer.
