You will encounter rules about writing everywhere you turn. We’re taught grammar and structure in school. Teachers demand specific formats, like APA or Chicago. What about fiction writing? Is it necessary to stick rigidly to all of the rules, or do you even have to follow them at all?

The real answer for fiction is in balance. Like Captain Barbosa said, they’re more guidelines than actual rules. However, it is essential to at least know the rules before you break them. This makes all the difference between intentionally breaking the rules and accidents that look like mistakes.

Original version first aired April 27, 2020.
