Screw the Rules and Let’s Have Some Fun

with

  R. H. Sheldon

Every time we pick up our pens, we’re haunted by our teachers and editors and colleagues and supposed friends, regaling us with countless rules designed to keep our writing in check and prose on the straight and narrow. But literature is chock-full of examples that subvert the laws of writing to bring the printed word to life and in the process force those ghosts to eat their thesaurus-thumping words. Join author and editor R. H. Sheldon as he takes us down the forbidden path to discover why writers break the rules when they do and what they hope to achieve by doing so. rest of story-
