Why I Can’t Stop Thinking About Organization in Writing

I am kind of obsessed with how we organize writing. This obsession is not just about academic writing in the form of essays, short stories, and school assignments. I think about this for emails, conversations, and communication in general. If you haven’t thought about organization beyond academic writing, consider the way people organize an email, a meeting, or a conversation. Communication is most effective for a reader, listener, or collaborator when it is well organized, and the tools we use for organizing writing help us learn to organize our other communication as well.
