A few more for Theo's list:


26. Always use a spell checker sew you can catch all you’re errors.

27. Make sure the verbs in your sentence agrees with their subjects.

28. It’s best to end sentences forcefully, most authors feel.

29. Use commas correctly, punctuation is important.

30. Avoid overusing exclamation points!!!

And these too:


31. Apostrophes are for possessives, not for plural’s.

32. Every good author eliminates sexist language from his writing.

33. Endeavor to keep your tone consistent, dude.

Religious disputes are like arguments in a madhouse over which inmate really is Napoleon.
