Ray Bradbury's 7 rules for writers

David McMillan comments in some detail on Ray Bradbury’s 7 Rules for Writers:

  1. Write with gusto
  2. In quickness is truth
  3. Write who you are
  4. Don’t write for money or fame
  5. Feed the muse daily
  6. Don’t be afraid to explore the attic
  7. Surprise yourself

Bonus rule: Do the work you were born to do — and no one else’s.
