Written communication with subject complexity or language barriers can complicate a reply. For example, have you ever received an email where the sender's discussion points were convoluted? You understand the questions/discussion points but the reply you're drafting is unstructured and all over the place.
Stop and ask yourself, what do you want to communicate? Consider what your reply says:
This is a forcing mechanism to:
- Be aware of what you want to communicate
- Reduce ambiguity by looking at what you're implying, and clarifying accordingly
