For anyone who reads my blog and who doesn’t read Neil Gaiman’s blog (must be a veeerrrrry small number! Probably just one!), here’s the Guardian’s article for the ten rules for writing fiction:

Part one.

Part Two.

Thought it might be of use to some folks. 😀

Loved that article! It made me want to put together my own list & post it, which I did. It was actually a great exercise to articulate my own “lessons learned” for writing.

Ooh, I shall pop over and read your rules later, Kelly 😀 I’ve not written much in the last few months – apart from uni essays, anyway – so it’s always good to read other writer’s pros and cons.

I did love these (ran across them via Gaiman) and some of them are very appropriate at the moment.

Well, from one Gaiman addict to another, I’d have expected you to! How’s the writing going? Have you sorted out the canals yet?

Can’t say I read the man’s blog myself – or any of his books. Had a look at the article though. Some were quite amusing, but I’m still not sure about having rules for fiction. Does fiction really need rules? I’m not convinced it does.
