I can do no better today than to direct you to this article about the ‘worst pieces of writing advice’:
I found myself cheering inwardly as I read this, as it debunks some of the most hackneyed ‘myths’ about writing but does this in a constructive, not destructive, way, offering common sense advice in place of the so-called ‘rules’.
My favourite one is #1, the argument against the ‘show don’t tell’ advice, and also the follow up #2.
Which one is your favourite? And are there any you don’t agree with?
