This is an old article, but who cares? It’s new to me! I found this little gem on Reddit’s /r/Writing, and now I’m sharing it with you:

Stephen King’s Top 20 Rules For Writers — Barnes & Noble Reads

I’m personally not the biggest fan of On Writing, and sometimes I feel like I’m the only author who isn’t. I’ve seen a good number of people call it life-changing, and it’s hard to live up to hype like that. It’s a good book and it has a lot of good advice. But life-changing? Ehhhh. It’s not a bad choice if you need another book to tell you to stop procrastinating and write 1,000 words a day, though.
