Hello, hello, hello!
Toads, the number of the day is three. Throughout time and across cultures, the number three has been held as significant. Religion (the Trinity), visual arts (the rule of thirds), and Wicca (the three-fold law) are just a few examples of the widely held view - "onme trium perfectum"- that perfection comes in threes.
With that in mind, let's explore the rule of three as it relates to writing. It's pretty simple, really. Three is more satisfying to a reader than two. Three stanzas, three adjectives, three examples of something . . . three paragraphs, three elements, three rhymes . . . see what I mean? Play with the rule of three in any way you like . . . just keep it to 90 words or less.
