UX Writing Challenge: Day 1

Jan 10 · 2 min read

Daily UX Writing is a newsletter that sends you a short UX writing exercise every day for two weeks. The challenges include a scenario and how many words you have to work with.

I started learning UX writing last year and English is not my native language, so for me, this is a real challenge.

This is the first challenge:

Nobody likes to receive the news that their flight is canceled, so I wanted to be as clear, useful, and concise as possible. I don’t think that this is a good time for humour or show how witty you’re as a writer. A text like this should be neutral and helpful.

This is what I came up with. I’m not a designer, but I’ve made a small prototype instead of just writing. The most difficult part was not to exceed the maximum number of characters.

I’m sure that it could be better, so if you have any comment, I’m here to learn!
