Most of you have heard of the "Rule of Three", but some of you have not. More of us use it in our writing without even thinking about it.
While Googling for info the other night and watching a rerun of NCIS, Tony DiNozzo mentioned it while explaining the developement of a crime the team was investigating about a serial killer. He said, "Do something once it's a tragedy, twice it's a coincidence, three times it's a pattern." Just what I was looking for.
Further searching turned up a great blog by Brian Clark. He talks how the rule of three has been used throughout history in nursery rhymes, comedy, and diverse areas of life. Stop by and check out Brian's blog at:
