While doing any type of writings, there are many different styles that the writer can use to get his or her point across. Depending on the situation at hand, the style will change accordingly. There is personal writings, where the writer will bring out his or her emotions and feelings, and then there is a more business type of writing, which will be a little more serious and written to many people rather than just a few. In this past project in English 101, we had to explore both styles of writing, both personal and professional.
