Five Great Quotations about Rules of Writing

“The only Fiction-general ‘ironclad rules’ in writing fiction are the laws of physics and the principles of grammar, and even those can be bent.” - Val Kovalin

“There are many rules of good writing, but the best way to find them is to be a good reader.” - Stephen E. Ambrose

“Writing as a creative art flourishes only when there are no rules. Rules stifle you from entering the silent and forbidden spaces where the core of the story is waiting to be revealed.” - Gloria D. Gonsalves

“Restrictions and writing shouldn’t mix. Let your mind be open. Let it be a creative canvas.” - Lauren Hammond

“Language is not law; it is in fact a lot like music. Speech is jazz – first you learn the basic rules, and then you become good enough to improvise all the time. Writing is somewhat more like classical composition, where established forms and conditions will hold greater sway.” - Robert Lane Greene
