 In How to write a book, Monday Motivation, Richard Beynon's blog
  1. Writing is rewriting.
  2. The first idea is not necessarily the best idea.
  3. Your protagonist must want something – badly.
  4. Writing is not the best way to prepare financially for old age.
  5. Writing is the best way to prepare emotionally for old age.
  6. Details make story memorable, not plot devices.
  7. Less is more.
  8. When emotions run hot, writers write cool.
  9. Story flows from character, not character from story.
  10. Love your characters. Love especially your bad characters.

Happy writing,
