I Learned Something Last Night. 

 I Learned  Something Last Night 

I learned something last night: when I try too hard to get something right, I often loose focus of the goal. 

In commercial writing, we have to learn to balance what we want to say with what someone is likely going to read. Doing this is sometimes harder than it seems, but from every mistake a lesson can be learned – at times, it’s as simple as chill the hell out!

  1. Awesome rules. I’ve never written commercial fiction before…that must be difficult to balance your own interests with the public’s interest. But definitely the best rule is writing every day makes you better at writing every day. Writers write! So if you want to be a writer, you’ve gotta write!!
