We've all been overloaded with the "rules" that writers shouldn't break, or the "mistakes" that will tip you off as an amateur. But how important are they really? Editing a manuscript I wrote as a much younger writer, I've had to address a lot of these faux-pas and make a lot of decisions. In this episode, I discuss some of the most prominent "rules" that writers have been breaking for centuries to varying degrees of success.

What rules do you disagree with? Let me know!

This episode is part 3 of my Revision Series.

We're always told to shut out our inner editor so we can get the words down, but what happens when we need it to come back? I discuss everything I've learned while editing the first chapter (especially the first paragraph) of my novel.
