Writing "rules" are guidelines
Also a fan of On Writing by Stephen King. I have the audio version as he is the narrator. Second job is a Realtor and Stephen drives around with me, giving me permission to write. :D
Thanks for doing these articles, bit fan of your work and now, your "guidelines".
I’m not a writer, or aspiring one, but loved reading your advice to those who wish to write. Seems like good advice for all including students in school.
