I just returned from 5 days at a camp without computers or Internet, and I started writing a stage play loosely based on Indifferent City. It's the first stage play I've attempted, though I have written screenplays before. The idea to try this came on my first day at camp.(less)

Every other 'rule' you hear about is just a suggestion of what works for the author of the advice. If you tell a great story that entertains and makes sense the rules don't matter.

Having said that, there are often reasons for those rules, so learn them before ignoring them. But honestly, the only rule that matters is to write. Every day even if it's total crap. Crap can be fixed, a blank page can't. (less)

The Water Knife by Paolo Bacigalupi
"“If I could put my finger on the moment we genuinely f**ked ourselves, it was the moment we decided that data was something you could use words like believe or disbelieve around.”

Rob Rosen G.K., hi. Hope all is well. Since we’re Goodreads friends, I thought I’d share my latest novel, Midlife Crisis, with you.

"Rob Rosen does madcap gay humor better than anyone else writing today. Midlife Crisis is no exception." - Neil Plakcy, author of The Mahu Investigations

I hope you can pick up a copy. As a special thanks for your time, feel free to message me on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/therobrosen) for a free PDF copy of any of my other 9 novels, which you can find here: http://www.therobrosen.com

All the best,

Rob Rosen
