    Tips for good writing





    1. Always avoid alliteration.

    2. Prepositions are not words to end sentences with.

    3. Avoid cliches like the plague. (They're old hat.)

    4. Employ the vernacular

    5. Eschew ampersands & abbreviations, etc.

    6. Parenthetical remarks (however relevant) are unnecessary.

    7. It is wrong to ever split an infinitive.

    8. Contractions aren't necessary.

    9. Foreign words and phrases are not apropos.

    10. One should never generalize.

    11. Eliminate quotations. As Ralph Emerson said, "I hate quotations. Tell me what you know."

    12. Comparisons are as bad as cliches.

    13. Don't be redundant; don't use more words than necessary; it's highly superfluous.

    14. Be more or less specific.

    15. Understatement is always best.

    16. One word sentences? Eliminate.

    17. Analogies in writing are like feathers on a snake.

    18. The passive voice is to be avoided.

    19. Go around the barn at high noon to avoid colloquialisms.

    20. Even if a mixed metaphor sings, it should be derailed.

    21. Who needs rhetorical questions?

    22. Exaggeration is a billion times worse than understatement.

    23. Superlatives are the worst.

    24. Brevity is the soul of wit; that is to say, in order to best maximize one's rhetorical effect, it is necessary to strip down any given idea to its bare essentials, and to use as few words as necessary to convey the sentiment, generally speaking.

    25. You shouldn't never, ever use double negatives.

    My girl would ram into it a few times, then put it on the ground, lay down and stare at ME like, "Why do you hate me so much."

    It's always my fault, see...

    Sadly, there's probably quite a few humans who would probably react the same as your furbabies...
