Under the Filing: Pieces and Parts of My Past
Category: More Things I Want to Remember
An outcast, wild ass, Christian (kinda/sorta?) English teacher at Hayfork High School in far, far, northern California (yes, there really is such a place) gave me the following helpful list:

Rules For Writing Good
Each pronoun agrees with their antecedent.
Verbs has to agree with their subjects.
Don’t use no double negatives.
A writer mustn’t shift your point of view.
Don’t use a run-on sentence you got to punctuate it.
About sentence fragments.
Don’t use commas, which aren’t necessary.
Don’t abbrev.
Check to see if you any words out.
Never use a preposition to end a sentence with.
Use apostrophe’s right.
Last but not least, lay off clich├ęs.

And yeah, they ran him out of town too.
