Robert J. Sawyer on Heinlein's Rules of Writing

Frequently beginning writers wish they had guidelines to follow to become rich and famous. Robert A. Heinlein didn't guarantee wealth and fame, but he did formulate a set of five rules for writers to follow. Robert J. Sawyer has listed the rules, added a sixth, and provided his own witty commentary throughout.

The rules may seem self-evident, but an astonishing number of people don't follow them. Although the rules were originally written for writers of speculative fiction, they apply equally well to writers of any genre. All beginning (and not so beginning) writers should check this page out.
