I thought it would fun to discuss all the great books out there that have broken many "rules" of writing. I was on another writing forum and participated in one of those "what are the first three lines of your WIP?" and basically i was told by a few people "don't talk about the story just tell the story." I took the advice though and change it up in my draft even though I knew there are a few books that break that rule that have been critically acclaimed. I was on Amazon yesterday previewing Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, and I realized Ransom Riggs, the author, broke that rule. His character set up the story before going right into it. I then thought of Perks of Being a Wallflower in which the author did the same thing. So what writing rules to you hear a lot, yet have found authors who have broken those rules?
