I admire writing that is well-formatted. The following are what I believe constitutes good formatting:
-appropriate choice of font
-good sized font and varying sizes of the font when appropriate (e.g., the size of the title is larger than the text)
-selective use of bold, underline, and italics
-the creation of headings to better organize the document
-“white space” – straight text appears too dense, paragraphs break ideas up nicely
-use of bullets when appropriate
I believe that even when an excellent piece of writing is not formatted to please the eye, it will suffer when readers assess their satisfaction with what they’ve read.
I read a great variety of books – classics, contemporary, non-fiction, young adult, etc. I believe that they all contribute to my writing ability as well as inspire me and provide ideas on what to write about.
