At least Mopey Moe does deserve credit for one thing. Rather than doing nothing, he immediately bounces ideas off Speedy Didi about which elements to include. But, to make sure that Moe doesn’t always have to come to her so that he can be more confident when writing, Didi recommends that he create templates of the most common writing situations that occur on the job. Figure 2-3 gives a list of 16 common documents composed by corporate writers, ranging from the administrative to the technical. We do not always need to include all the elements in our documents, and quite often the listed elements are not enough for our readers.
