How to write GOOD...(shouldn't that be well...?!)


This is a joke, so don't take any notes.  Of course, you all know, first of all...we don't say "how to write GOOD..."  We say "how to write WELL."  This is the difference between an adjective (GOOD) and an adverb (WELL)...which I will explain in detail at a later post.

For now, if you don't get the jokes, don't worry, just leave a comment or ask a native English speaking friend.

Native Speakers: You should get this!


  1. Avoid alliteration. Always.
  2. Prepositions are not words to end sentences with.
  3. Avoid clichés like the plague. (They're an old hat.)
  4. Eschew ampersands & abbreviations, etc.
  5. One should never generalize.
  6. Comparisons are as bad as clichés.
  7. Be more or less specific.
  8. Sentence fragments?  Eliminate.
  9. Exaggeration is a billion times worse than understatement.
  10. Parenthetical remarks (however relevant) are unnecessary.
  11. Who needs rhetorical questions?
