Rules? For writing?


Some interesting points here.

I think I’m breaking a few of these.

Rule No. 1: Show and Tell.

Rule No. 2: Don’t go searching for a subject, let your subject find you.

Rule No. 3: Write what you know.

Rule No. 4: Never use three words when one will do.

Rule No. 5: Keep a dream diary.

Rule No. 7: Writer’s block is a tool — use it.

Rule No. 8: Is secret.

Rule No. 9: Have adventures.

Rule No. 10: Revise, revise, revise.

Rule No. 11: There are no rules.

    I feel that Rule #10 clashes with #4. :)) Even so, it’s a fun list!

      Excellent point! And #11 contradicts the title. But, as you wrote, it’s fun anyway. Thanks for commenting.
