Tips on Writing ProseLately, I've been noticing a disappointingly large number of people out there on deviantART who call themselves "writers", but are surprisingly clueless when it comes to honestly and clearly conveying a story in prose. In an effort to give them a hand up (and perhaps to reach out to other writers frustrated with our increasingly text message-happy culture), I am compiling a list of tips I think every writer should know.
Now, I won't pretend that I know everything on the subject (since I don't), but I've been told I'm a pretty decent writer, and I think I do sufficiently know my way around the English language. These tips won't automatically make you a good writer, but they're certainly good things to keep in mind as you write. These aren't rules, but hints.
As you can imagine, this list will very much be a work in progress, as there is plenty of information that hasn't been covered here and might be added later. Feel free to drop back in later to see if I've added anything new.

And to tell you the truth not many people understand this knowledge or are aware of how important it is to understand it.But the interesting phenomenon is that
