Sunday: Open Discussion
Sunday is the day for characters and writers alike to mingle and talk about whatever is on your mind.
Thanks again for stopping in, everyone! It's been alot of fun and great practice with writing buddies.
As a possible discussion topic and for your writing edification:
Great rules of writing
Do not put statements in the negative form.
And don't start sentences with a conjunction.
If you reread your work, you will find on rereading that a
great deal of repetition can be avoided by rereading and editing.
Never use a long word when a diminutive one will do.
Unqualified superlatives are the worst of all.
If any word is improper at the end of a sentence, a linking verb is.
Avoid trendy locutions that sound flaky.
Last, but not least, avoid cliches like the plague.
