  1. There are no rules on how to write. Just write and write and write and if you have it within you, eventually it will appear. If you don’t have it within you, no amount of rules will implant it there.

    1. Well, clearly there are times when you need to look certain facts up. But that doesn’t involve ‘writing’ in the sense we’re talking about. It involves it only in the entirely practical sense you’re likely to ‘write’ it down once you’ve looked it up.

  2. Facts are things that anyone can learn but stories are more than just facts. They are heart felt and emotional creations that take you on a journey. Everyone is able to tell their own story about their own lives so go figure it’s inside you to tell any story. 🙂

      1. I think maybe because I created the page as a link only it didn’t show up? I had no choice because I couldn’t find the essay anywhere on the Internet so I had to type it up. It can be accessed in the first paragraph of the blog post I wrote with the link to it. I cited it so readers can read the entire essay (though they’ll need to buy the anthology it’s in). The essay is a great read. Thanks.
