Writing Rules that Help

Friday, January 27, 2012


Most writers have self-imposed writing rules. It could be anything – from writing one funny story every week to use of a quote in “inverted commas” on every page. What are the most successful self-imposed writing rules? Here are few that I read on different websites.

  • 1.       Write fiction at least 10 minutes per day. If a day is missed, make it up the next day. Helpful in generating easy ideas.
  • 2.       Deliver work 24 hours before a deadline.
  • 3.       Aim to write at least 450-500 words a day. If there’s no assignment for you to work on, create it for yourself. Publish blogs because its good discipline to write every day.
  • 4.       Keep spellings, syntaxes and grammar as accurate as possible.
  • 5.       Spend 30 minutes a day in doing creative exercises.
  • 6.       Make editor's life very easy. Revise at least 3 times.
  • 7.       Submit enough articles to earn a minimum of INR 3000 every day. It will keep your mind focused on the business end of writing.
  • 8.       Do not begin a new sentence with “but”.
  • 9.       Make a writing schedule and stick to it.
  • 10.   Keep the paragraphs short. They are easier to read.
  • 11.   Respect your readers, and at the same time have a desire to entice them to read what you are putting out through thoughtful, measured prose. 
  • 12.   Have a very engaging opening and quickly inform the reader what the piece is about. 

That’s my list. If you have anything to add to it, feel free to write to me at nitima@writingroutes.com

Starting the sentence with a but is a no-no. Your content wouldn't even sound convincing to the readers. The best thing to do is always write the content with a positive outlook and choose the right words to support a particular contradiction.
