Forget all the Rules and WRITE!!!

POTL: All Things Books, Reading and Publishing

forget the rules writing

A friend of mine asked me, “What’s the secret to writing?”

I replied, “Ditch the rules and just write.”

It’s not complicated, people. Writing is as simple as you want to make it. So-called experts come up with these tricks of the trade in order to get published and rules to follow.

I agree with Melinda Haynes above (thanks to Belinda Witzenhausen for the graphic).

“Forget all the rules. Forget about being published. Write for yourself and celebrate writing.”

We are all storytellers and we have a story (or several thousand) to tell. So, tell your story. Be passionate about it and let the words flow. Readers will be drawn to the story and the characters, not the rules. 🙂

Celebrate writing and get started!
