GS-13 Rules For Writing Good

1. Always avoid alliteration.

2. Prepositions are not good words to end sentences with.

3. Avoid clichés like the plague. They’re old hat.

4. Comparisons are just as bad as clichés.

5. Be more or less specific.

6. Writers should never generalize.

Seven: Be consistent!

8. Don’t be redundant; never use more words than are absolutely necessary; excessive verbosity is highly superfluous.

9. Who needs rhetorical questions?

10. Exaggeration is about a billion times worse than understatement.

  1. Hey, you need to update the Kimberlin Forgery counter after todays doozy.

    Hey Bill, did the pedo teach you how to forge? Because your emails are even worse then his forgeries.

    1. Pro tip: Never take forgery lessons from someone who was arrested, convicted, and sentenced for it.

      Unlike a preposition, a forgery should end in a sentence.
