I want to thank you for the way you delivered your lessons. You made each delivery exactly the way you were teaching us. You have given me the tools to become a better writer for myself, and for my business. If anyone is considering this course, they should stop and register. It's a winner!
Nice approach of considering the reader and their emotional responses to the piece before even beginning to fully plan, let alone write. Avoiding cognitive cost for the reader is essential, no matter what you're writing
I found the ideas of "cognitive cost" very true for me especially but I had never thought about it before. The related strategies make a lot of sense and I am sure that my writing is already better with the structure provided by the guidance in this course
I like the strategy of seeing everything from the viewpoint of the reader and delving deep into exactly what motivates someone to read, the idea of cognitive cost and how to avoid, the model for reader response, etc. The whole course was most definitively a learning experience and a good use of my time
Another great course where I was surprised by how much I learned (from something I thought as a "simple" topic) -- If there was a fourth course I would check it out too!
