What’s the first rule of Fight Club again?
Honestly, was never a big fan of the movie on my one and only viewing, but I decided to go for the dreaded clickbait, something I usually stay far away from doing in my writing.
The A to Z Challenge – R is for Rules
But today I am breaking my own rules.
I am breaking the rule of this A to Z Challenge, which is post on the corresponding day of the month, but I didn’t feel good, didn’t feel like it, and am instead posting the following morning.
I just had a conversation with my sister about this sort of thing. I am known to family and friends and possibly vague acquaintances as the woman who is nice and polite and doesn’t make much of a fuss.
Or, just maybe I like to break that rule. Or, perhaps, I’m simply waiting for the right moment to break it.
The common rule in the writing world (though I suppose it applies to many other things) is that first you must learn the rules, before you can even consider breaking them.
Once you do that, however, break away. Rules not laws of course, but even so…even if…even sometimes then, them, or that.
So maybe I’m still learning and you just never know when I’ll know enough to break the rules I choose to finally break.
Or maybe I’ll do it, so sneakily, it will be as if to never tell I’ve done it at all.
***This is my first year of joining the A to Z Challenge and so I’ve decided to post randomly, as a way for new visitors to my blog to get to know me a little better. I look forward to discovering some interesting new blogs too.

Hey! R is for Random (too)… ok, I totally liked the reference to ‘Fight Club’ on ‘the Facebook’.
I’m hoping that my own rule breaking does not put me too far outside the pale, as I have to remind myself that the readers are seeing only my words, they do not have any information to help them understand my stories, other than what is on the page.
Many many possible choices for this letter and I like the one I ended up going with here. Thanks for reading Clark.
Hey rulebreaker! Do your thing. And do it your way.
I will. Thanks Louise.
