Linda’s Rules of Writing

Knowledge is always waiting for us, if we’re willing to see it.

We’re onto the letter L in Linda’s Rules of Writing of the A to Z Challenge, and never stop Learning about writing.

I have a friend who’s an actor, mostly retired now since he’s 86 and got started in the 1950s.  But I was surprised to hear that he still takes acting classes, despite all his experience.  There’s always something new to learn.

It’s the same way with writing.  The more I learn, the more I realize how little I actually know. And I’m finding that I always learn something new. If I look for it.  It’s one of the reasons I’m starting to take free online college courses.

What have you learned about your writing recently?
