I mentioned here in the first installment of ‘Advice For Writers’ about A Writer’s Tale by Richard Laymon. I just finished reading it tonight, for the third time (can you tell I dig this book or what) and thought his ‘Rules of Writing’ would be a great thing to provide to you, if you haven’t had a chance to read it already. Via the following link you will find the majority of that section in the book, though each ‘part’ has been cut down a tad bit. Though, overall, you will get a great feel for what he was saying you should strive for and try to avoid when writing your own fiction.
