40 Writers’ ‘Rules for Writing’
curated and annotated by Emily Harstone at AUTHORS PUBLISH (reblog)
August 26, 2018
What a great compendium of ideas about writing in the form of “rules,” so that we can argue with, agree/disagree, utilize, benefit from, whether we’re experienced or newbie writers or an interested readers/fans of some or these authorial rule-givers!
BTW: KUDOS for including a lot of women, writers from different eras, and various types of writers.
Saved the best one for last, IMO, from Phillip Pullman:
40. Phillip Pullman’s One Rule for Writing
“My main rule is to say ‘no’ to things like this, which tempt me away from my proper work.”
