Happy Birthday, Jane Yolen, born 11 February 1939
10 of Jane Yolen’s 20 Rules of Writing from Ingrid’s Notes
Eschew the exclamation point!
Go easy on the adverbs.
Don’t let characters float on the page. Anchor them with action. No talking endlessly!
BIC = Butt In Chair. HOP = Heart On Page. PNF = Passion Not Fashion. You may never be the best but you can always get better.
No one expects a happy ending unless it’s a fairy tale. We need a meaningful ending. It may not be easy. Hard choices are good.
Not everything should be simplified. Complexity adds richness.
Exercise the drawing/writing muscle! Don’t get flabby! One page a day and you have a 365 page book by the end of the year, or that many picture books. Exercise!
Read what you have written out loud. It will help you to see what you have missed.
Dealing with the dreaded writer’s block. It is all in your mind. The solution is to stand up, walk, eat, do other things! Distract yourself. If that doesn’t work, start a new writing project. Don’t go read a book, you will get that authors voice in your head instead of your own.
Not every project will be completed.Moaning about this is for sissies.
Jane Yolen’s rules of writing were presented as the closing keynote address at the SCBWI New York Winter Conference in January 2010. Read all 20 rules here.
Yolen is an American writer of fantasy, science fiction, and children’s books. She is the author or editor of more than 280 books, including The Devil’s Arithmetic, Sister Emily’s Lightship, Lost Girls, and Owl Moon.

She’s speaking at my school in 2 weeks! I’ve already gotten my ticket.

Usually I find writing rules too obtrusive (“write what you know”, etc.) but these are solid, practical pieces of advice. That “one page a day” never comes easy to me, but I’ve got to start making it the norm, rather than the exception.

grrrlplz:

did i ever tell you guys about the woman who works in my family church’s youth group who wears this shirt to church? she wore it when i went there and according to my mom, she still wears it. the youth group did a scavenger hunt in the mall recently and my mom said that she wore it to the mall and all the kids were really embarrassed. she said that the reason she wears it is to show what god has “delivered” her from, as if masturbating is like, a heroine addiction or something.

lol
