Hello Lwinmar80,

There's not much difference between business communication and personal writing. Both require you to say what you want to say in a simple and direct manner. These tips should help you to start off. List the points you want to include in the letter/note and put them in order of importance. Explain each point in a different paragraph. Now pretend that you are the person to whom you will be sending the letter and read aloud to yourself. If you feel that the write-up will convince and prompt the person to do what you want him or her to do, then you have written an effective business letter. Revise the draft until you feel it is effective.

Remember that revising draft is unavoidable; even great writers revise their drafts many times. This may be tiresome in the beginning, but as you gain experience, you'll be a wizard. Prepare a few standard drafts to suit different occasions; they will help you to get off the work quickly. Learn basic grammar; for example, "I" when you are referring to yourself is always a capital "I" and the first letter after a full stop is also capitalised. If you buy a primer on grammar and practice, you will be perfect over a period of six months.

Hope this helps,

Dear Professional Friends,
Greetings and best wishes of the day.
I am surprised to read that now-a-days also someone wants long letters... communication should be crisp, to the point and meaningful, i.e. the business culture in this busy world.
Would like to request Mr. Atul Sharma to send me the e-book to my mail id ... just to get an idea...
To Lwin.. you can arrange one training session.. am a corporate trainer and Sr. Hr professional... can share my knowledge as how to write an effective email/ltr etc.
With best wishes,
