  1. Very interesting blog. Thanks for sharing it. I think it true we writers do wonder sometimes if it’s not best to break the rules…occassionally.

    1. I always think about the writers who pushed the envelope and chose to be different. That is what I hope to achieve. Not all of those rules are great. Besides, if we only follow the rules how do we invoke change? Interesting thoughts. 😀 Thanks for reading the article. ❤

      1. I agree. Our writing, after all, is something creative. We’re writing about something that has inspired us. The rules are guidelines that certainly help but not to the sacrifice of individuality. 🙂
