The tone of any particular piece of writing comes across as clearly as the nose on your face. Many times that I read a CV that has been written by someone who is fearful, I can tell immediately. The tone of writing comes across very quickly and turns off the reader so quickly that the CV gets rejected almost immediately even though nothing else is actually wrong with the document

Difficult events and circumstances in your life evoke powerful, sometimes very negative feelings and emotions in you. These can find their ay into your subconscious mind very quickly and will show up as clear as day in the writing that you produce. Once you understand that this can and does happen, you are now in the position to do something positive about it

Being aware of your emotions can really help you to project a more positive view to the reader. For example, if you have a sales letter or a CV to write, one of the best things that you can do is to identify when you are at your best. I write best last thing at night, for other people, first thing in the morning is when they are at their most alert and positive

It stands to fairly simple reason that good feeling come over on paper or a computer screen as clearly as they would in person. Make absolutely certain that someone that you know and rust looks over the work that you are creating and gives you a realistic, critical view on how you sound to the reader. If you are writing something important like a CV then make absolutely sure to write it when you are feeling your best

Writing when you are tired or bored is a recipe for disaster. You will end up making mistakes that you won’t pick up and will at best bore your reader. The purpose of a piece of writing is primarily to engage the reader and make them interested in your work. Turn the reader on mentally or don’t bother- you’re wasting everyone’s time otherwise

Put something of you into every piece of writing that you attempt. I’m not saying that you need blood dripping out from you forehead as evidence of your intensity but put something real into your writing. Great writers are not scared of inducing powerful emotions in the reader. Whether that is love, passion, belief or any other emotion, make sure that the reader is moved in some way- even if it is anger

Taking risks in a positive way with your writing will produce incredible results. If you cannot connect with your reader, you might as well not bother. Selling yourself through an important document like a CV is so vital to the success of your life that you need to be sure that your language connects with the reader in a positive, emotionally captivating way
