When a writer is asked by someone else to write something for them, a conversation must take place. The writer has to know what they are to write about; the target audience; and what the objective of the writing is. Is something being sold? Information about an organization or event? Is the work due on a certain date? Once key information is shared, the writer can begin drafting the work. The client must be kept informed, especially if a deadline is approaching. As client and writer work together, the rough draft becomes a smooth draft and, finally, a final copy with which the client is happy. It’s also important for the writer to practice effective time management and deliver the finished work on or ahead of schedule.
