There are so many different types of written communication, and each has its own appropriate tone.
I mean, think about it: you speak differently depending on whom you’re addressing. Texts have different conventions than emails, and emails differ from facebook or blog posts, and blog posts are not the same as formal business letters. Letters have a lot in common with a formal business document like an annual report or a grant request, but the bigger the document, the more structure it needs. Don’t be intimidated by the documents you need to create: let an editor work with you to hit just the right tone.
