Neil Gaiman's 8 Rules of Writing

Neil Gaiman’s 8 Rules of Writing by Maria Popova “Perfection is like chasing the horizon. Keep moving.” In the winter of 2010, inspired by Elmore Leonard’s 10 rules of writing published in The New York Times nearly a decade earlier, The Guardian reached out to some of today’s most celebrated authors and asked them to each offer his or her commandments. After Zadie Smith’s 10 rules of writing, here come 8 from the one and only Neil Gaiman (Graveyard Book, Coraline...)
