Those are great tips! I'm going to copy and paste them so that I will always have them! Thanks!

You're welcome, Kelli Jo. I've found them useful in my writing career. Hope you do too.

Those sure aound like great rules for a writer! Some of them work for my profession too - attorney! I really enjoy series - you get hooked on the characters (good guys anyway)! Will have to look into your books!

Good point, Martha. I had a career in business before I started writing. Wish I'd been as wise then! Lots of good guys (and creepy villains) in my books. Hope you enjoy them.

Good advise. Am going to copy it and
give it to a friend who is trying to get
her first book published. Rules for
reading? If you have more than one
book going at the same time (I usually
have 3 or 4) make them different
genres. It is way to easy to have plots
and characters get confused. Right
now I have a James Paterson, a
western and a modern romance going
plus a couple of children's books.

Great tip, Patricia. I usually can't read more than one book at a time, so I admire your ability to do that!

I especially like No. 8!

Hallelujiah on knowing the difference between good and bad advice! More power to ya! :) I also love that one of the commandments is to write every day. I'm not a writer, but I'm a happy reader and I loved this! :D

LuAnn, I fear I may eventually lose my mind before I'm done... ;-)
Rachael, I've taken enough bad advice that I'm better at telling the difference between good and bad. Instincts come into play, and mine have gotten better, but they're not foolproof!
