The task at hand
Via Preeti, Amitava Kumar's ten rules for writing. I agree with much of this, but roundly dissent from #9 and #10 - I like working on more than one book at once (though admittedly they are always books of different genres - I wouldn't think that working on two novels at once would be particularly productive for most people, so in that sense it may be good advice - but on the other hand, don't we all draft something, leave it for a while and write something else, then come back to revise?).
