Be yourself – another writer’s style is not your style
Read much and write much and read some more
Write from your experiences – people want to know your story
Collect data profusely – one day you will need it
Keep your eyes open – ideas are all around you
Proofread – your credibility rests on it
Excercise – sitting makes you dull
Write clean – garbage may sell but it doesn’t keep your mind and spirit pure
Don’t forget the little stuff; footnotes matter
Give credit where credit is due
