Like any art, writing creatively has no real ‘wrong answer.’  Each scrawl of the proverbial pen is yours to dictate as you please; however, there are a few basic mistakes that I have seen in near every young author that I have read.  I will address those in this paper, as well as ways to fix each problem, by listing a set of four, basic, tentative ‘rules’ that I have come up with in my studies as an editor.  Keep in mind throughout my explanation, as with any English law: For every rule, there are exceptions.  A mistake is only a mistake if not done on purpose.  If you break any of the following rules, you must only make sure the reader knows you meant to do so, to prove a point or drive something home.
