Robert’s Rules of Writing is a mixed jumble of advice about plot, character, motivation, and setting. The last two are referring to the writer—not their characters. To illustrate this point, four of the rules are Skip the Starbucks, Burn Your Journal, and instead Take a Walk Around the Block (and Take the Zoloft).
Robert’s Rules of Writing is a humorous look at the craft of writing. Some of the rules are obvious, some are great, and some will have you silently arguing about them within your own head. However, the best one is rule 10, Get Rolling. Truer words were never spoken. This would make a great gift to the aspiring writer in your life. 3.5 stars!
