What are the three Rs of writing?

I was fortunate enough to spend an hour yesterday on the phone with a new author friend who had made the New York Times bestseller list four times.

As we were wrapping up the phone call, she said,

“Don’t forget the 3Rs of writing.”

I said I wouldn’t!

I can’t. I don’t know what they are.

You can’t forget something you never knew.

And when I got over that moment of embarrassment and sent her a private message later on, I asked if this was it, and she said yes.

I apologize for the horrible image but that was the best I could find on my phone while I was at the grocery store grabbing chips and beer for the USF football game last night. (We won but we’re not really proud of beating East Carolina University. We really need to get into a better division again.)

Anyway, I still don’t know exactly how the three Rs of writing works. Do you?

What are the 3Rs of writing – and how do they work?

  1. Certainly an interesting overview though, in the examples given, these would appear to apply to non-fiction writing. Nevertheless, do provide a reasonable guide for those writing reviews (many readers comment upon how difficult they find them to write). Thank you for sharing Dan.

  2. Great info I am a fan of 3r’s I do it well just did not know the best way to explain what I was doing when I write to get the best outcome.
