  1. Kim,
    Great article!
    Just as you say, the writer may not value rules, but she must value the reader. A good writer writes mainly for the benefit of the reader. Rules help the writer achieve the desired effect on the reader, whether it’s to inform, entertain, or anything else.

    A rule I learned from your class is to cut back on the use of adjectives and “that” in sentences. What an improvement!

  2. Hi, Jane! I’m sure I cut an unnecessary “that” or two when I was revising this post 🙂
