Writing for the periodicals

From the July 1985 issue of The Christian Science Journal

One of the ways to "love your neighbour"—your fellow reader of the periodicals—is to make sure you explain the ideas as you go along. Don't assume he necessarily thinks about things the same way you do or that he will automatically see them from your point of view. Don 't make sweeping assertions. Self-editing can make a big difference. Put the manuscript aside for a few days—or more—and then read it critically, looking for weak or unclear spots. Also, the first time you use a term that has a specialized meaning in Christian Science (such as "animal magnetism"), a brief, fresh explanation of what it is can be quite helpful for the newcomer and can sharpen the perception of the longtime reader as well.
