Ten rules for writing fiction

Ten rules for writing fiction

Get an accountant, abstain from sex and similes, cut, rewrite, then cut and rewrite again – if all else fails, pray. Inspired by Elmore Leonard's 10 Rules of Writing, we asked authors for their personal dos and don'ts.

Elmore Leonard, Margaret Atwood, Roddy Doyle and others give advice on how to keep the pencil to the paper. Good reading.
