A message is an informal means of communication. It is a short written or verbal bit of information sent from one person to another. It contains important information and is left for someone who was absent when the information was received. A message is the method of conveying information in a precise and clear manner.
In order to write a message effectively one should use appropriate language, style and format. It can be written both in a formal and informal tone. While writing a message one should be clear, brief and direct in their approach.
The message must be put in a box and should contain the information, the date and time at which it is recorded, the name of the person for whom it is meant and the writer’s name. While writing the body of the message, one must keep in mind that only the most important details should be written without adding any new information. The sentences should be grammatically correct and reported or indirect speech should be used for writing.
