[process] A new set of rules

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.

  • Write more
  • 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
