Advice to Writers - Jenny Wingfield Interview "Read. Write. Read. Write. If you are moved by someone else’s work, study it to discover how they made the magic."
The Starved Writer - Stop Talking, Start Writing "If you have something you want to write, just write it. All the way through, non-stop, with no regard for quality or substance."
K. M. Weiland - Manifesto "You're a writer. Claim the title."
Note: "Most" and "Important" are capitalized to get you to pay attention. It's Important, after all. "Rule" is in lowercase because, after all, this is writing, and the rules are never set in stone. Not even this one. But that's no excuse! Go write! When you've made a million dollars you can break this rule, not before!
