Rules for Writers
- Verbs has to agree with their subjects.
- Prepositions are not words to end sentences with.
- And don't start a sentence with a conjunction.
- It is wrong to ever split an infinitive.
- Avoid clichés like the plague. (They're old hat.)
- Be more or less specific.
- Parenthetical remarks (however relevant) are (usually) unnecessary.
- Also too, never, ever use repetitive redundancies.
- No sentence fragments.
- Don't use no double negatives.
- Proofread carefully to see if you any words out.
Note from The Moo Incarnate: Please note that although
this is quite useful (and funny), a lot of writing "rules" should be taken
as guidelines instead. Take, for example, Winston Churchill's response
to rule #2, listed above: "This is the sort of English up with which I
will not put."
