    Wink A Writer's Guide for PR !

    If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a thousand words better say a lot! Those of us gifted with or cursed by the gift of transcribed verbal incontinence on occaision get ahead of ourselves while writing or just other wise plain forget what we should know.

    Here is a small offering as a start to a "writer's guide for PR". Personally, I got a good chuckle from this list. Please feel free, in fact I encourage those who want to, to make additions.

    This was prepared, in part by journalism experts at the University of Missouri. I have included a few additional rules.

    1. Use commas only when, necessary.
    2. Prepositions are not to end sentences with.
    3. Never end a preposition with a sentence.
    4. Always keep you're-punctuation mark's in the right places.
    5. Never abbrev.
    6. Pronouns must agree with its antecedents.
    7. Verbs has to agree with their subjects.
    8. Use commas to separate words in a series parentheticals introductory clauses and the like.
    9. Read over your work to make sure you have not out any words.
    10. Speling maters.
    11. Word choice is important, so double cheque.
    12. While a transcendent.vocabulary is laudable, one must nonetheless keep incessant surveillance against such loquacious, effusive, voluble verbosity that the calculated objective of communications becomes ensconced in obscurity.
