Neil Gaiman’s 8 Rules of Writing

Neil Gaiman’s 8 Rules of Writing | Success For Writers: Work Hard & Make It Happen | Scoop.it

If you love Neil Gaiman's writing, (and I do), you might like to see his quick tips on writing... good advice, simply put. Nice.  Thanks to Brain Pickings

 

"The main rule of writing is that if you do it with enough assurance and confidence, you’re allowed to do whatever you like. (That may be a rule for life as well as for writing. But it’s definitely true for writing.) So write your story as it needs to be written. Write it ­honestly, and tell it as best you can."
