Behind Me

I’ve found that in writing, like in life, the best advice is usually none.

Whoa.

No, I’m not advocating anarchy in either one. But guidelines aren’t strings on a puppet. Sometimes breaking the rules is how you survive. Write what you believe.

Language is always changing. It lives because we do.

About John Northcutt Young

I write. Remember making-up stories from spelling words in the fifth grade. A journalism degree followed. Thanks for looking.

  1. I liked your post. The things I write always tend to fall somewhere outside the realm of conventional, so your comment, “Write what you believe” resonates with me.

  2. I agree. “Be true to you” is the only rule. Thanks for reading.
