The 5 W's of Communicationof writing for a complete message...Getting a degree in Journalism teaches you many ways and styles of writing, but it also teaches you HOW to Communicate!!!!!! After studying for many years,,, I finally realized that good writing boils down to the basic 5 W's.the basic 5 w's are Who, What, When, Where, Why.
What....What is MOstly used for asking some questions..example as :What's my name..what's my lineit Also Express The expressions..Example as:So what..??What is the purpose of the letter, note, blog, etc...?What does the subject hope to accomplish ?Is it informative/educational ?What do you want the reader to know ?Does it have a beginning, a middle and an end ?You must clearly identify what your communication is all about.This is otherwise known as plotting a story.
1: Another item that is frequently missed. Either the place is not specified at all or there are no directions on how to get there!2:This is oh so important in invitations! You get the Who, What, When, but forget to detail the Where!

• GETTING A DEGREE IN JOURNALISM TEACHES YOU MANY WAYS AND
STYLES OF WRITING, BUT IT ALSO TEACHES YOU HOW TO
COMMUNICATE! AFTER STUDYING FOR MANY YEARS, I FINALLY
REALIZED THAT GOOD WRITING BOILS DOWN TO THE BASIC 5 W'S.
WHO IS WRITING THE NOTE, LETTER, STORY, INVITATION, COMMUNICATION, ETC.
WHO IS THE SUBJECT ?
WHO IS THE AUDIENCE ?
WHO IS GOING TO READ IT ?
LEARN THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FIRST PERSON VIEW,
SECOND PERSON VIEW, AND THIRD PERSON VIEW.
IF YOU CAN'T ANSWER THIS FIRST QUESTION, THEN WHY WRITE AT ALL?
DOES YOUR PLOT INCLUDE A SEASONAL REFERENCE ?
IS THERE A DEADLINE FOR THE STORY ?
IS THERE A DEADLINE FOR THE CHARACTERS IN THE STORY TO
ACCOMPLISH THEIR GOAL ?
IS THERE AN HISTORICAL TIME FRAME ?
TIME IS AS MUCH A PART OF THE STORY AS ANYTHING ELSE. IT IS A
PARAMETER THAT SHOULD NOT BE IGNORED.
WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THE LETTER, NOTE, BLOG, ETC...?
WHAT DOES THE SUBJECT HOPE TO ACCOMPLISH ?
IS IT INFORMATIVE/EDUCATIONAL ?
WHAT DO YOU WANT THE READER TO KNOW ?
DOES IT HAVE A BEGINNING, A MIDDLE AND AN END ?
YOU MUST CLEARLY IDENTIFY WHAT YOUR COMMUNICATION IS ALL ABOUT.
IMPORTANCE IN INVITATIONS !
WHERE DO YOUR CHARACTERS COME FROM ?
WHERE DO THEY WORK ?
WHERE IS THE PLACE ON THE GLOBE THAT DEFINES YOUR BACKGROUND ?
DON'T FORGET TO SET UP A HOME OFFICE FOR YOUR WRITING.
YOU MUST HAVE A SPACE DEDICATED TO WRITING IT'S TAX DEDUCTIBLE!
AS A QUESTION ADVERB.
AS A RELATIVE ADVERB.
AS A CONJUNCTION.
ASK FOR FEEDBACK.
INFORM YOUR READERS.
WRITE SOMETHING ABOUT OTHER PEOPLE
(PEOPLE ARE INTERESTING BEINGS).
WRITE SOMETHING ABOUT A CURRENT EVENT.
EXPAND ON A BACKGROUND STORY.
MAKE YOUR ARTICLE A RESOURCE TO REFER BACK TO.
PAINT A PICTURE WITH WORDS.
GOOD STORIES ALL CONTAIN THE 5 W'S.
