How’s your writing? I decided to re-edit my debut novel, With Good Behavior. It’s taking me a long time because it’s so bad! Adverb abuse abounds.
JANUARY 4TH QUESTION: What writing rule do you wish you’d never heard?
Since I got into this writing thing as a lark, I haven’t been big on rules.
One rule I wish I followed more was to limit adverbs. *see above*
But one rule I wish I’d never heard?
My day job as a psychologist doesn’t leave me the time or energy to write every day, and all this “rule” does is to jack up guilt.
I agree that writing is a muscle–the more we write, the better we get. But we each need to find our own writing schedule.
I mostly write on weekends, and that works for me.
