You're right, a nice article. I've just saved a copy of it to refer to in case I ever decide to enter the Bulwer Lytton bad sentence contest, even though I've never thought "It was a dark and stormy night" was that bad.

The quote from Amanda McKittrick Ros wins, hands down. And I have to agree that Strunk and White is a great guide.

Here's A link to the BL 2012 winners.
