Whatever next?

Now that a couple of people seem to be reading my weblog, I feel that I should get better at it. I like words, and I enjoy writing, but I haven't got the patience to write a book, so a weblog suits me fine.

My first post was about grammar, and how business documents can be written badly. I'm currently writing a design document, which will be read by the development team and our bosses. I'm keen to avoid looking foolish by including basic English errors, but also the content needs to be accurate and relevant. Good writing, like anything, takes practice; I need to practise (I've just had to check which [practice/practise] to use), so a weblog suits me fine.
