    I especially like the point about knowing your audience. I had both a contemporary YA mystery author and a literary fiction author – both award winning, recognised and acclaimed – tell me I ought to use modern colloquial dialogue in my Old World Fantasy books instead of the more archaic patterns I use. My audience would not have liked that at all.

    I concur with everything you have written, especially the points about research and grammar. A well researched article with excellent grammar stands out, and even the people who don’t love your work will give you recognition for excellent writing.
