There are lots of “writing rules” around from well-known authors, and I thought it would be useful to bring them together in one list. I’m sure I’ve missed some, so feel free to make suggestions!
Here is, as far as I can tell, a collection of The Best Writing Advice From Famous Authors:
Ten rules for writing fiction is from The Guardian.
The Guardian also has a Rules for writers series.
“Fumblerules Of Grammar” comes from William Safire.
6 Rules for a Great Story from Barnaby Conrad and Snoopy is from Brain Pickings.
How to Write is a very engaging New York Times piece by author Colson Whitehead that’s funny and informative.
Writing Rules! Advice From The Times on Writing Well is from The New York Times Learning Network.
A Simple Way to Create Suspense offers great writing advice from author Lee Child.
Feedback is welcome.
