The only fly in the ointment with an approach like this is that I feel there's sometimes far too much: "ignore the rules and what others may think
" - and far too little: "in every craft or art there's a certain number of skills that need to be mastered before you posses the necessary tools to express yourself creatively.
Probably because most of the people who write this sort of book already have
mastered the basic skill set and common body of knowledge for their art form, and can now no longer see the point since it's completely integrated into their creative process
Like the great poet said to the aspiring kid who handed him 100 pages of blank verse: "That's is all well and good kid. But put it aside for now and learn how to write the rhymey-dimey
stuff. If you can do that - and still
be interesting - you'll be able to write anything."
