My favourite: No.8 There are three rules for writing a novel. Unfortunately, no one knows what they are. ― W. Somerset Maugham The same goes for screenplays or TV scripts! My second favourite is: No. 10 Remember: when people tell you something’s wrong or doesn't work for them, they are almost always right. When they tell you exactly what they think is wrong and how to fix it, they are almost always wrong. – Neil Gaiman Food for thought, especially with the plethora of script doctors out there in the 'real' world.
Thanks for the article. I fit number 17 perfectly. "Substitute ‘damn’ every time you’re inclined to write ‘very;’ your editor will delete it and the writing will be just as it should be. – Mark Twain." One of my first rough drafts had over 1500 very's, that was out of 120k words. She was very excited, very happy, very depressed, etc...now I get rid of every filter word that isn't necessary.
Number 3 is great. I think I already obey 15 too much. Ha.
