First Draft Writing Rules from Copyblogger

In Demian Farnworth’s post, “10 Rules for Writing First Drafts [Poster],” he mentions this quote by Kurt Vonnegut:

When I write, I feel like an armless, legless man with a crayon in his mouth.

If an author like Vonnegut felt that way, I feel better about my own scribbling process.

Below are Mr. Farnworth’s first draft writing rules. For a pdf version go to the post and scroll down to find the link.

    Dear KL Wagoner,

    Thank you for the first draft writing rules. Writing can be like living in a vacuum and one tends to think that everyone else is so talented and does it so easily. The rules were very encouraging.

    All the best,

      You’re welcome, Richard. I follow most of the rules listed. But I forget to celebrate when I’m done with a first draft — there’s always another project begging to get started. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment!
