Rules for Writers

1 Marry somebody you love and who thinks you being a writer’s a good idea.
2 Dont have children.
3 Dont read your reviews.
4 Dont write reviews. Your judgment’s always tainted.
5 Dont have arguments with your wife in the morning, or late at night.
6 Dont drink and write at the same time.
7 Dont write letters to the editor. No one cares.
8 Dont wish ill on your colleagues.
9 Try to think of others’ good luck as encouragement to yourself.
10 Dont take any shit if you can possibly help it.
