WRITING THE DESCRIPTION OF A PERSON IN ACTION
Description is a technique widely used in technical writing. In fact, you will probably describe something – machines, processes, or systems – in every report you write. Sometimes you will describe in intricate detail, and other times in broad outline. Regardless of the topic or the depth of detail, all descriptions share several common elements. ~is chapter explains those elements and shows you how to apply them when you describe a mechanism, an operation, and a process focused on a person.
