Share and Request Writing
Brief writing in the course of day-to-day living makes requests for information or assistance or shares events and emotions in a writer's experience. This writing usually takes the form of notes, memos, or mail (or email) and is written from a personal point-of-view and is centered on the needs, feelings, and events of the author. Details may range from the minimum required to make a point to extensive elaboration to convey depth of feeling or the need for assistance or action.
Because they are often so brief, it is important for notes and messages to follow the conventions of capitalization, punctuation, spelling and grammar. The reader may draw conclusions about a writer's skills, education, and attention to detail based on the manner of writing even before focusing on the content or message.
