Here on A Writer’s Journey, we often talk about about the rules and guidelines of writing. Whenever the subject comes up, it’s met with a lot of skepticism and a healthy dose of “but I’m an artist!”
No, people don’t often say “but I’m an artist!” But what they do say is rarely more than a variation on the theme:
- “There ARE no rules in writing.”
- “But <their favorite author> breaks that so-called rule all of the time!”
- “Hey! You owe me 20 bucks!”
I can’t be the only writer who gets that last one. Am I right? Am I right? 🙂
Today over at the Kill Zone blog, bestselling author and writing coach James Scott Bell addresses the notion of rules and guidelines. You’ll find the source link below.
