    Writing Promp 4: What does it mean to you to remain “neutral” in your writing? What do you gain from being neutral? What do you lose?

    To be neutral in your writing means that you have the ability to approach both sides of a subject matter with same amount of objectivity. It also means that you do not offend the point of view of those either for or against the topic being discussed. When neutral you may gain a deeper understanding of the entire topic because you approach it with an open mind. However, by remaining neutral you leave yourself open to being swayed by another’s opinion on the subject because you lose the opportunity to express your own ideas on the topic being written about.

    What does it mean to remain “neutral” in your writing? What do you gain from being neutral? What do you lose?

    Being neutral in writing, from my perspective, means do not support ideas that belong to your opponents. If you want to be neutral, you have to underline the main points and thesises from your opponents that leads you to neutral position in conversation or in desiccation. In this position, the writer’s gain is audience because the writer does not have own view and for this reason, do not have some disagreement with audience. The best examples that show how to be neutral are politician newspapers because they just describe opponents’ ideas. However, it is very important to notice that if you are neutral in writing you do not have a chance to express your ideas because in this way, you automatically support one of opponents.
