Breaking the rules?


According to there are some writing rules you are allowed to break. That’s good news. One of my favourites? “You can use incomplete sentences.”  Okay, I know we shouldn’t overdo it, but they can add variety to your writing. Something like this text I read here

“Danny wanted to forget his troubles. Forget his job. Forget his wife.

No, on second thought, he liked the job.”

Of course, you need to know when you can do it and when you have to be careful! 😉
