Editors complain about the lack of originality, lack of spark. Over-zealous contest judges send unsuspecting entrants into hysteria. One writer tells another, "You will NEVER sell THAT because of XYZ."  Rules, rules, rules.  Lately it seems like writing in general and romance in particular are drowning in them. Holly Jacobs says the truth will set you free! The truth according to Holly is:  most of the "rules" can be bent, broken, folded, spindled, and otherwise mangled. Very few of them are absolutes, at least as far as they're concerned. Once you know the "rules," can you ignore them and break them at will? Is it really "all in the execution?"
