There have been several threads as of late where the writers argue against the need to establish a system, or some call it formula, of writing, that makes the story compelling to read. Suggesting do so would inhibit their artistic outpourings. Citing always, some author who apparently broke some or all of the rules and was not only successful but lauded a literary hero for doing so. What I see with most rule breakers are people who truly understand their art or business or science and find a unique way to present their image of things to the world that is unique, refreshing and groundbreaking. I see no virtue in being seen as a visionary a hundred years from now having died hungry and broke because no one would look at my art today. Screw that. Typing away, hoping to replicate a work of distinction is not the right approach, IMHO.
