Three More “Rules for Writing”

In December, I published a post on Rules for Writing.  I recently came across another “set” of rules from W. Somerset Maugham that put a smile on my face:

“There are three rules for writing a novel.  Unfortunately, no one knows
what they are.”

Having recently finished the first draft of a novel, I can relate.  As best I can see it, the main rule for writing is: “Just do it.”
