Edward Atkins’s 8 Rules of Writing

1. Use a precise and succinct writing style.

2. Make sure the words you use are particularly appropriate for the meaning you’re conveying.

3. Generate smooth-flowing prose that at times has a cadence.

4. Be accurate at all times.

5. Write prose that is easy to understand. Don’t make your reader struggle.

6. Try to keep sentences fairly short with a single meaning.

7. Stress substance and significance. Don’t waste your reader’s time.

8. It helps if your book is timeless.
