The Only 7 Writing Rules You’ll Ever Need


My passion for storyology started at a typical young age, but with a desire to do it forever. That's why before I started my true writing journey, I taught writing and reading in high school classrooms in AZ. Later, I started writing part-time toward a goal of being published. All the while, trying to help others like me with my storyology blog.

    Pretty arrogant from you to say that these are all the rules you need.

    This is a great post! My first thought after reading the intro was, ” I have to thank this woman for doing all of that research, for saving me the time and energy!” I know I would’ve done the same thing!

    In your introduction you say . . . There are just as many ways to do it wrong as there is to do it right.
    It should read . . . There are just as many ways to do it wrong as there ARE to do it right.

    “Never use adverbs”
    If you can’t use them then why are they in the dictionary? Pick up a best seller and you’ll find plenty of adverbs!

    This is poor advice.

    • Ania Kiplan says:

      I understand your frustration with that one because I write with adverbs, too. It’s not that you can’t use them as much as there are better ways to write than to use them.
      Also, keep in mind that a best-seller doesn’t indicate good content. That’s just good marketing.

        You’re correct on that last point, amigo. Some books just make me want to slam my head against a wall.
