On my way back to Green here after a very pleasant dinner with elusivem and garyomaha. Somewhere recently I realized my four rules of writing had changed. Or the way I view writing. Or something. Anyway, here's the new version. (Which does not invalidate the old one, I'm just standing on a different lever beneath the shadow of the world these days.) Exegeses to follow later as needed.
No one cares about your career more than you do
The writer is the worst judge of their own work
The story belongs to the reader
As always on this blog, commentary, critique and random snarkiness are invited, but for now I am back to Green
