10 Commandments of Writing

Posted on February 5, 2014 at 8:00 AM

1. Thou shalt set aside time to write every day.

2. Thou shalt set a daily word count goal and stick to it.

3. Thou shalt follow the path of the Hero's Journey.

4. Thou shalt create memorable characters.

5. Thou shalt retain a unique voice.

6. Thou shalt capture readers from the start and hold them captive until The End.

7. Thou shalt "write tight" and endeavor to improve the craft of writing with every book.

8. Thou shalt remain thick-skinned through the editing process and refer to commandment #7 when in doubt.

9. Thou shalt put only God and family before writing. Make writing a priority.

10. Thou shalt do unto fellow authors as you would have them do unto you.

Thank you, Ladies! So sorry I put 9 pm instead of 9 am and then ran off to work and to see the Harlem Globetrotters. Man, I thought I did good. Maybe an 11th Commandment is order: Though shalt double check any automated technology. Goodness!

Goodness, I must be dealing with "apparitions" tonight. The punctuation key on my previous comment seems to have gone berserk. On the other hand, what an excellent example of emphasis? yikes!

Love those commandments, Jayna? oh, how I agree! Now let's all talk about the how! Methinks if we will dig deep enough in this discussion, we will find treasure?
