The Precepts of Writing

Every student has had a teacher who stated that all written assignments must address who, what, where, when, why, and how, but did you know those precepts are used before you ever write a word of your story?

Let us examine how they are used.

What you are writing is determined by the combination of all the decisions you have made: who, what, where, when, why, and how you need to write, You have chosen the style you will use, the market you are trying to get into, the subject you are writing about, the format, and finally the time line or goals needed to finish it.

Remember all those things you learned in composition class, use all the precepts that you were taught, and enjoy writing it!
