Writing Rules from C.S. Lewis

Thanks to Tammy and back to Jennifer for this link:

8 Writing Tips from C.S. Lewis

My favorite? Write only about things that interest you. If you have no interests, you won't ever be a writer.

As the teacher of students who may not be interested in what they're assigned, I would add that we can MAKE interesting most of the things we need to write about. I think that's part of the idea behind William Zinsser's Writing to Learn, which I keep wanting to read.

Thanks for the link, Cindy! FYI - there was a problem with it: I had to take out an extra "http" and add a missing colon.
