Note: Welcome to this new series on the iPad to transform how we approach writing in the classroom (or anywhere)! In this new series, the focus is on 6 actions you can take to iPadify the Writer's Process. Yes, that's right. The Writer's process. Maybe we've gone a bit astray with our focus on the writing process. As a writer, what do you do? That's what this series focuses on. 
By the way, if you haven't read the previous series, iPadifying the Writing Workshop, you'll definitely want to in this convenient post that combines all the sections into one.

Take Your Writing From Meh To Memorable With These 12 Simple Techniques

Take Your Writing From Meh To Memorable With These 12 Simple Techniques | Writing | Scoop.it

Nor does it mean you should shrug and put out subpar content because, “Hey, I’m not a writer. That’s as good as it gets.”

 

Try one or more of these techniques the next time you put pencil to paper – or fingers to keyboard – for writing that has a whole lot more marketing punch....

"Meh" does seem to be the new word on the web. It's not exactly good writing, but let's not hold that against them....

Good article! Lots of useful hints to help add spark and clarity to one's writing. I found the tips on he/she/it/them especially insightful. A good example of personable writing on a specific topic as well.
