We all want to be writer, right?
That’s why we blog, why we journal.
That’s why we wrote notes to one another during middle school instead of waiting 13 more minutes for the class period to end.
I came across a great blog post just now from “101 Books.”
The blogger, RobertBruce76, posted a list of popular author Jonathan Franzen‘s 10 Rules of Writing. It’s a quick read and includes nuggets of wisdom like “The reader is a friend, not an adversary, not a spectator.” Beautiful, no.
Alas, he also mentions not writing in the first person … yup, guilty.
