my writing habits

mercoledì 4 luglio '07 at 11:23 am (english, ToDo, writing)

I found this poster which lists the (supposedly) only 12 ½ writing rules you’ll ever need..

Let’s see how I’m doing!

  1. If you write every day, you get better at writing every day.
    • Well I do write every day
  2. If it’s boring to you, it’s boring to your reader.
    • Amen to that
  3. Get a writing routine, and stick with it.
    • Hmmm… there’s room for improvement here :-p
  4. Poetry does NOT have to rhyme.
    • Oh rly??! Luckily for you, I don’t do poetry ^_^
  5. Resist stereotypes, in real life and in your writing.
    • Resistance is futile :-p
  6. Writers read. Writers read a lot. Writers read all the time.
    • Yeah I read a lot  :)
  7. Make lists of your favorite words and books and places and things.
    • Hemm.. does this list count??
  8. There doesn’t always have to be a moral to the story.
    • Thank God!!!!
  9. Always bring your notebook. Always bring a spare pen.
    • Usually I take notes on my phone..
  10. Go for walks. Dance. Pull weeds. Do the dishes. Write about it.
    • Yeah yeah…
  11. Don’t settle on just one style. Try something new!
    • @_@
  12. Learn to tell both sides of the story.
    • Now, this is going to be tough

I suppose I’m not doing all that bad, aye? Not that good either tough… :-/
