Organize Your WritingWhether you are writing a memo to your co-worker or a report for your boss, you should decide what information you want to convey. Here is how to do this:
- List each item you need to discuss in your memo or report.
- Put them in order — from most to least important
- Write a brief summary of your entire memo — this will be your first paragraph.
- Expand on each item listed in step 1.
- If any action needs to be taken by the recipient, state that in your closing paragraph.
