Periodical writers need to know and correctly apply the conventions of their markets. For the rest of us, all questions of style boil down to clarity of thought and expression. A fine example of a writer who creates his own style is Mark Jenkins: "It was there, in the whaleblack nights of boylong summers, that we'd talk." (Off the Map, Chapter 22) He even invents his own compound adjectives, yet you know precisely what he means, and no one could say it better.. Some of us are more concerned with using style than with arguing about it.
