Henry Miller's writing rules

Henry Miller's writing rules from Martine's bilingual blog from Montreal.

Sample rules:

1. Work on one thing at a time until finished.

2. Start no more new books, add no more new material to "Black Spring".

4. Work according to Program and not according to mood. Stop at the appointed time!

6. Cement a little every day, rather than add new fertilizers.

11. Write first and always. Painting, music, friends, cinema, all these come afterwards.

Eleven rules in all.

Sal, you have to F.O.C.U.S.
