I've heard that writers should read the type of stuff they want to write. Usually that implies really good fiction and prose, but I want to write great emails to my colleagues and network. What types of stuff should I read?
While various sites put out "how-to" guides almost daily, I'm interested in finding examples of good business writing in real life. There's a difference between "Eliminate this one word from your writing for success at work!" and an actual letter eloquently written from a employee to a manager, for example. Both can be helpful, but real samples are much harder to find.
Jeff Bezos' shareholder reports are good, but they're a little longer than a typical email. They're still a great example of using narrative in business, so the length difference may not be a big problem.
One of the biggest challenges in reading good business correspondence is that so much of it is private. Where can I find good business communication to read, in order to pick up habits that will make me better at writing email?
