Rules or Excuses?

I love to write. As a kid, I shared my writing freely, until something changed. I learned grammar, rules, and that there IS an appropriate salutation for a former President of the United States. I found comfort in my copy of The Elements of Style…Okay I gripped it until my knuckles were white.

Rules matter, but for many, myself included, the rules become cozy excuses. Instead of publishing a wobbly blog post, I save it for a final proofread. In reality, that post joins piles of unpublished posts reminding me that sometimes rules are just cop outs.

This post is going live. Now. No excuses.
