The one writing rule
by: Audrey

This is good general advice. I would simply caution that the reason for the writing dictates what you include. There are very few rules that apply to all writing. In fact, I can think of only one:

Write so that the reader gets the message you intend to send.

If you are writing a report on a murder for a newspaper, you may want to leave out the humor or the romance, depending on whether or not that is important to the story.
