2. you
You always want to be
working toward eliminating
the “you” voice out of your
writing. Using this pronoun,
“you” can make it very tricky
for your reader, and you want
to work on making your
writing as objective as
possible, but using the “you”
makes your writing subjective
and less formal and
professional. Work hard on
writing that “you” out of your
writing. [Jaclyn Chupeck]
