Writing done right

15 Jul

I recently read a blog post by Nick Parker at The Writer that clarified my thoughts about creating storyboards for training. Although the blog post is essentially about providing feedback about someone’s writing at work, I thought the tips about providing feedback could also be used when creating storyboards.

The original blog post is here:
The Writer

Nick suggests we seprate thoughts into three things:

1. Content
2. Structure
3. Tone

Taking content first, Nick identifies the need to include all the information you need to know (the where, when, and what). With structure, Nick asks whether the most important piece of information is easy to find and whether the ideas are in the right order. For tone, Nick asks whether the writing is in your brand’s tone of voice and whether it is clear and easy to understand.

These are great tips that will certainly help me create better storyboards in the future.
