12 rules for writers
XHow To Write Good
1. Alliterations are awkward; always avoid.
2. Prepositions are not words to end sentences with.
3. A writer needs a cliché like a fish needs a bicycle.
4. Comparisons are as bad as the clichés.
5. Be more-or-less specific.
6. All writers should never generalise.
Seven. Be consistent.
8. Don't be redundant; don't use more words than necessary; avoid being verbose, it's excessively superfluous.
9. Who needs rhetorical questions?
10. Exaggeration is a billion times worse than understatement.
12. Don't miss any important steps
