It is the Direct Request: Heading to Las Vegas. Do the letter in full letter style—use block style and mixed punctuation. This style is shown in Figure 8.4 on page 228. You can also refer to Appendix B for letter styles and punctuation styles. Single space the paragraphs and double space between and follow other spacing throughout the letter as shown in Appendix B. Use Guffey’s 3 x 3 Process, which is explained on pages 221 and 222 A good example of a Direct Request is shown on page 228.NOTE— the block letter style has all letter parts beginning at the left margin; mixed punctuation has a colon after the salutation and a comma after the closing; use a picture-frame effect—top and bottom margins equal and left and right margins equal; use Word’s default left and right margins but adjust the top and bottom margins to make them equal (approximately); use the two letter state abbreviations in addresses (all caps and no punctuation, MO—AR—KS etc. see page B-10);“Sincerely” is the preferred complimentary closing for business letters; initials at the bottom of the letter are usually only used if the writer and the typist are different persons (since you are the writer and the typist in this case, do not use initials); you do not need a title after your typed name in the closing if the letter is written on a personal basis; if you were writing as a business person and writing on behalf of your company, then you could use your job title—such as Sales Manager, Vice President, etc.OTHER TIPS— Review Chapter 8 for the direct (deductive) plan that would be used for requests. In a nutshell, you make your main request at the very beginning of the letter and then justify (tell why you are making the request). Then give more explanation and details and end with a request for action.A checklist for writing direct requests is shown on page 231. Don’t “thank in advance” in a letter. If you ask someone to do something, don’t be presumptuous in thinking they will do it.Use future tense instead—“I would appreciate your ……..” Or, come up with something more unique and creative.FYI—Please pay attention to my instructions. Sometimes examples in the text may not follow what I ask for. If you have questions, use the Discussion Board or contact me. When I give you writing assignments, you need to read the assignment carefully and use the information given. Include everything that the assignment tells you. If you need to include other information that you think is necessary, be sure to do so.For this assignment, you will need to use a letter address—w hich is provided on page 248. You know the name of the individual that you are contacting. When using a name, do not forget to use a courtesy title (Mr., Mrs., etc.), job title (Manager, Assistant Manager, etc.), perhaps the department, the company name, street address, city, state, and zip.Please get in the habit of using the two-letter state abbreviations when using full addresses in your writing. Mr. Rip Van Winkle, Manager Accounting Department Dream Company 1919 Heavenly Way Sleeptown, MO 61112 Dear Mr. Van Winkle:There is a double space (which leaves one blank line) after the letter address, after the salutation, and after the last line of the body. You return four times, which leaves three blank lines after the date and after the complimentary closing. This differs from your text. The text states different spacing between the date and the letter address. Again, please follow my direction and leave three blank lines after the date. REMEMBER—AS YOUR SYLLABUS STATES, ALL LATE WRITING ASSIGNMENTS WILL BE PENALIZED 10 PERCENT PER DAY.Discussion Question – Week 6
