Living the RomCom is taking a brief hiatus - not to don a speedo and beer-goggles on a sunny beach, but to write.
You remember writing - it's that thing you're supposed to be doing while you're, like, online?
For those of you involved in either pursuit, here's a hefty link that's been making the writerly rounds for a few weeks now: the so-called 10 Rules For Writing, according to a group of luminaries led by Elmore Leonard. It's got insights to savor from all ends of the spectrum, from Annie (Proulx) to Zadie (Smith).
Though the rules espoused by these writers focus on fiction, they're applicable to screenwriting, and for that matter, to any form, be it memoir-faking or blog-commenting.
The rule that comes up most often, besides "Read," is "Write" - so why ignore the experts? Onward then, with pen in hand, and hopefully I'll have a decent page-count to crow and/or complain about when I'm back here in early April. May your days be loving and funny-ful in the meantime.
