When you write something, do you look and see
how it affects the people reading it? If you do,
do you change your writing approach to become
a more effective writer when it backfires and
you have the wrong result?

One approach may be fine for communicating and
sharing some ideas and a certain perspective.
Another approach may be most effective to get
someone burning mad at you. A third approach
may work for a fabulous burst of humor. A
fourth approach may confuse and mislead people,
getting them arguing about other things, when
you'd rather not have them talk about something.

As a skilled writer, you'd be able to pick
your approach, draw together the words, and
clearly fashion the thoughts and feelings
that you'd share. With less skill, the writing
stumbles, and unintended results ensue.
