The best writers strive to achieve a style that is so clear that their messages cannot be misunderstood. One way to achieve a clear style is to minimize your use of the passive voice. Although the passive voice is sometimes necessary, often it not only makes your writing dull but also can be ambiguous or overly impersonal. Here’s an example of the same point stated in passive voice and in the active voice: PASSIVE: The net benefits of subsidiary divestiture were grossly overestimated. ACTIVE: The Global Finance Team grossly overestimated the net benefits of subsidiary divestiture.
Finalizing the Letter. Edit and Review: Once you are finished with writing the letter, try to look for errors. Check for spellings, punctuations, grammatical errors. Don’t Staple the Letter: Use a paperclip on the top of the left corner if there are many pages. Use of staple doesn’t look nice for a business letter. Posting of the Letter: Always use clear and correct spelling for mentioning the name and address of the recipient.
