Kurt Vonnegut rules of short story

Kurt Vonnegut's rules of short story writing. He wrote a mean short story so might be worth a look.


I've read his rules a few times. And every time, I think to myself that I should have followed "this rule" with "this story". Brilliant man, he is.
Read these rules numerous times now. Brilliant! I've away enjoyed this video too: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oP3c1h8v2ZQ Vonnegut can be quite the comedian when he means to be!
