I'm not as politically correct as a lot of people, but I try not to directly offend others. However, writing is an outlet where all tools should be examined. Rules that make you a good person in life, can create good writing when ignored. My example: Never judge someone by their look. Readers will generally judge a character by their look/how they hold themselves. Taking advantage of this can be useful to shock the reader, or even to give them confidence in their ability to judge a character. Anyone else have any good examples of things that are wrong to do in society/public, but can help in writing?
