1.3.1 Reading guide
There is a lot to think about in this course, particularly if you work carefully through all the examples and activities, which are mainly in section 2. I suggest you take the course in five stages:
Up to the end of section 2.1
Sections 2.4 and 2.5
Sections 3 and 4.
Alternatively, simply stop reading closely when you feel you have gone far enough for your present needs. Just skim through the rest of the course looking at the boxes. You can come back to it at later points in your studies when you are ready to work on new aspects of your writing. Learning about good writing is not the kind of thing you can do in one ‘go’. It is something we all need to keep working at.
