Now Here's Good Writing Advice!

Another gem from Jason Haley’s Interesting Finds: Petzold Book Blog - Book-Writing Advice.

Lots of terrific advice from a guy who’s written a book or two.  I’ve busted any number of his rules, particularly #4: get enough sleep and #6: maintain a balanced life (tough to do the Mr. Mom thing while co-authoring 1200 pages…).  I definitely busted #13: Don’t get a haircut until the book’s completed, but if you think I could go six months without a haircut…

#11 is sheer gold: Seek progress, not perfection.  That’s tough when you’re attached to those words you’ve agonized over, but it’s vital.
