Five Lies Creative Writing Teachers Tell
I quite enjoyed this article recently from 'Writers & Artists'...
David Savill busts a few 'golden rules' that we're taught for creative writing.
What do you think? Do you agree with him?

A good article; a reminder that we're all different and what might work for one writer (Mark Twain did very well writing about what he knew) doesn't for another (I doubt whether Arthur C Clarke was ever abducted by aliens, never mind Kurt Vonnegut)ReplyDelete
They're all good points, but my favourite is the one dispelling the 'show don't tell' rule, which is one I hear and read often. It's a balance, like all things...
