conventions have to do with a rhetorical setting

nothing applies everywhere – you have to have your mind set for the situation that you are in, you can’t simply assume what something is going to be like

genres are patterned responses to recurring situations

a genre is a form that a discourse community uses in order to make something happen

missing words and punctuation are common mistakes

write in first person
