Let’s finish the rules:

  1. Keep your exclamation points under control. You are allowed no more than two or three per 100,000 words of prose.
  2. Never use the words “suddenly” or “all hell broke loose.”
  3. Use regional dialect, patois, sparingly.
  4. Avoid detailed descriptions of characters.
  5. Don’t go into great detail describing places and things.
  6. Try to leave out the part that readers tend to skip.
