What are your writing rules?
I feel like for me, there isn’t a consistent list. Although, I do love to read what writers have to say about their own rules and processes. For me, I think the number one thing is what my poetry professor, Suzanne Matson calls, “showing up for work.” Even when you don’t feel like writing, or want to write, just getting in the habit of allotting time, and really using it.
Like muscle memory, your body will respond to the practice of quieting down, centering, and preparing to begin the endeavor at hand.
What time of day do you like to write? Do you show up everyday?
