A Writer’s Rule Book
From Hunter’s Writing
Sound advice, but there’s a couple of points I don’t quite agree with.
Show, don’t tell - except there are times when you need an ellipsis, or to skip over something that is not relevant to the immediate plot. It’s up to you to choose when to show and when to tell.
Never start with dialogue - starting a story with a line of dialogue might be awkward, but sometimes dialogue is a good way to start things in medias res (Jules Verne’s The Mysterious Island starts with ten lines of dialogue, without a single clue as to who is speaking).
Kids and animals can’t die - you don’t have to follow Hollywood rules. Children and animals are not immune to epidemics or accidents. If your story is set in plague-ridden 14th century Europe, for instance, the very real danger of sickness can make readers worry for your characters. If the universe you’re writing (historical or fantasy) has a severe food shortage, pets have a short life expectancy, particularly in cities. Maybe a better way to phrase this rule would be “Never make death gratuitous”.
Just my two centimes.
