Sarah Worley's curator insight, November 3, 2013 11:35 PM

This is a fun article to get students (or anyone) thinking about Creative Writing. Emma Coats, Pixar's Story Artist originally tweeted these twenty-two rules. These rules get writers thinking about the basics of successful storytelling. There are just so many gems in each of these tweets. Even though it is not meant for the classroom, it is perfect for it. Among the rules, writers are told they WILL have to rewrite, and that nothing is going to be perfect.
