Fellow bloggers, I feel it's important that we all master the following "Rules for Writers," which I received via email.

No need to thank me, just glad I could help. :)

With love,
Enocia

***********************

1. Verbs HAS to agree with their subjects.

2. Prepositions are not words to end sentences with.

3. And don't start a sentence with a conjunction.

4. It is wrong to ever split an infinitive.

5. Avoid clich├ęs like the plague. (They're old hat.)

6. Be more or less specific.

8. Parenthetical remarks (however relevant) are (usually)
unnecessary.

9. Also too, never, ever use repetitive redundancies.

10. No sentence fragments.

11. Don't use no double negatives.

12. Proofread carefully to see if you any words out.

Also
13. "Scare quotes" look "silly" when "used too much".

14. There IS no NEED to CAPITALIZE every OTHER word. CAPITAL letters SHOULD be RESERVED for CERTAIN names OF people AND places, AND at THE beginning OF the FIRST word IN a SENTENCE, and RARELY used AS EMPHASIZE.

16. Never EVER try to MANIPULATE a writer into FOLLOWING a particular RULE because RULES are GOOD for you.

Ooops, sorry I forgot about rule 15.
