Rules for Writer [sic]. by editors

1) Have your computer's wireless radio turned off while working: good writing is never researched in any way.

2) Don't use a long word where a short word will do: in fact, don't even use a long word where the only alternative would be an incoherent string of transliterated monosyllabic grunts.

3) Don't feel constrained by prescriptive grammar: for example, if you intentionally use adjectives in place of adverbs, people will think you're really talented because writers like Henry Green, Dylan Thomas and Ernest Hemingway relied heavily on the convention.
