Writers’ Toolbox: Ten rules for writing fiction

I’m sorry I’ve slacked on posting. My niece is due any day now, the house is being remodeled, and Fall semester started Monday. It is a fun but hectic time.

But back to writing! Ten rules for writing fiction is an article I found some time ago. It’s a compilation of rules/writing tips from published authors. Some of them are funny, but most of the tips/rules are helpful.

  1. I’ve read this list before, and I love it. The one I really agree with is Elmore Leonard’s number 2: Avoid Prologues. I swear I keep seeing more and more of these in romance, and I always just give a great big sigh before I read them. I hate it! Skip to Chapter 1, please. 🙂
