In non-fiction creative writing, can I be creative in how I structure my sentences? Can I even be creative with how I type the words on the page to help create a sense of drama?
Normally, yes. There are times when being overly creative may prove to be a distraction rather than contribute to creating tension or drama in a story. Making up words and having one-word "sentences" can sometimes be appropriate.
Which of these sentences is grammatically best?: A: Today I went to the store and bought fruits and vegetables horseradish and vodka, cherries and 7up. B: Today, I went to the store and bought fruits and vegetables, horseradish, vodka, cherries, and 7up.
B: Today, I went to the store and bought fruits and vegetables, horseradish, vodka, cherries, and 7up. (I'm not sure what this person is having for dinner...)
What are the four primary patterns of communication in an organization and what is one pitfall to each pattern?
Circle, pitfall: It can sometimes play out like the game "telephone" where the message from the leader becomes modified. Y, pitfall: Since the group is split in three and can only communicate between the groups through the leader, it can become disjointed and cause lag in communication. Chain, pitfall: This is like the circle pitfall in that the message is likely modified by the time the last person in the group receives the message from the leader. Wheel, pitfall: With the wheel pattern, all members of the group have direct interaction with the leader, however, sometimes the members cannot communicate with each other.
