Seriously. The manuscript was horribly written. And mostly because there wasn’t a hint of any sort of rules or consistency.
In writing, it’s important to have rules as a guide. You need to have a basic understanding of them so you can grow as a writer. Get a good grasp on how to get your point across.
Because if you’re going to bend or break some rules, you have to have a firm grasp on them right?
**gasp** Did I say break the rules?
While you can’t break all of them, sometimes a little bending and infrequent breaking help define your voice. Your style.
But when is it okay to break the rules? And which rules?
Is there a rule for breaking the rules?
