What Makes A Good Writer?
I read blogs everyday and for the most part those I choose to read are very interesting and entertaining. I came across some cool sites the other day where people can submit article and several of them have writing styles and guidelines. I think those are essential - you can't just have caca all over the place - but is it essential for a good writer? For instance, should the word caca be caca in my previous sentence, to indicate a word in Spanish or even Slang?
I'm telling you there are some amazing writers just within the group of folks I read, but not everyone follows a certain style, or even rules.
I checked The Backword Magazine out after reading a post on the Art of Brownsville. They have this chingon style guide.
What do you all think? I don't like sloppy writing, but I also don't like writing being inhibited by rules. For instance - I like to be entertaining on my blog - so I just write all kinds of pendjejadas - and instead of using commas or breaking up sentences - I use chingaderas like this --. I reckon' I understand arguments for both sides.
