Counting Each Shot: The FTD Version

Here is an article of mine, recently published in the November 2008 issue of For the Defense. The title is Counting Each Shot: Techniques for Emphasis and De-emphasis. The lesson is how to use the structure of a written piece to play up or play down the facts.

This article started out as a blog post. From there, it evolved into a short article for the DRI Appellate Advocacy Committee newsletter, Certworthy, Summer 2007 issue. Now it’s become a longer article for FTD’s larger audience. I guess this is an example of how blogging can help a writer record an idea when it happens, and later develop the idea into something suitable for paper publication.
