Article: “Zadie Smith’s 10 Rules of Writing”

Brain Pickings is an online “digest of the week’s most interesting and inspiring articles across art, science, philosophy, creativity, children’s books, and other strands of our search for truth, beauty, and meaning.”

This morning, I stumbled across an article on writer Zadie Smith:

“In the winter of 2010, inspired by Elmore Leonard’s 10 rules of writing published in The New York Times nearly a decade earlier, The Guardian reached out to some of today’s most celebrated authors and asked them to each offer his or her rules. My favorite is Zadie Smith’s list — an exquisite balance of the practical, the philosophical, and the poetic, and a fine addition to this ongoing omnibus of great writers’ advice on the craft.”

To read Smith’s rules for writing, click here, and once you’ve finished, spend some time perusing the thought-provoking, idea-filled site that is Brain Pickings to get empowered and encouraged for 2019!
