Don't worry. She did.
Not only does her article provide Kurt Vonnegut's 8 Rules of Writing, but if you read it now for the low, low price of a few minutes of your time, she throws in Elmore Leonard's 10 Rules of Writing absolutely free. AND she adds 8 more rules of her own--with explanations and examples of authors who have broken them compellingly.
This is seriously one of the best checklists I have read on how to write. I am printing it out and taping it to my wall.
Go read it and live it:
What do you think? Do you agree with her examples? Are the rules worth breaking?
