Speaking of Rules…

… Holt Uncensored has a useful (if long) article about the ten most common mistakes writers make in their writing, and often don’t even notice:

The Ten Mistakes

Handy read! I’m wondering if I should find a utility to tell me which words I overuse in my writing…

(probably ‘fuck’ 😀 )

  1. yep, that was a good list. I liked it. I make the same mistakes over and over.

  2. holy shit thats an eye opener.

  3. That’s a good read 😉

  4. Bells – yup, me too 🙂 Too many 19th century novels gave me some bad habits!

    Brettlez – I’m glad it was useful. I’m still pondering it. While I’m not a fan of rules in writing, those are ones I’d want to follow the vast majority of the time.

    Jayne – cool 😉
