Things I’ve learned about writing
1. Eschew obfuscation
2. Obliterate ego
3. Consume hearty slices of humble pie daily
4. Let your characters be your guide
5. When you’re done with a chapter turn off the typewriter and enjoy the silence
6. If one of your readers says it don’t make sense, it follows as the night the day that it don’t make sense
7. And finally, verily I say unto you: Don’t pontificate!
