Well more like 200+ rules, ideas thoughts from some bestselling authors. Get the inside track from writers like Elmore Leonard, Margaret Atwood, Ian Rankin, Zadie Smith and Will Self. And get an inside track on scribes like Philip Pullman who simply says “my main rule is to say no to things like this, which tempt me away from my proper work.” Indeed. I wonder, when asked to write about something you do, which is your living, your livelihood, how honest are you?
