JONATHAN FRANZEN S TOP TEN RULES FOR WRITERS as given to The Guardian on 20 Feb 2010with additional commenty comments by me 1 The reader is a friend not an adversary not a spectatorHmm well maybe I can t think Hugh Selby had very friendly thoughts when he wrote his brilliant Last Exit to Brooklyn it reads like he wants to shove all of us into a landfill site and have done with the human race But uite often that s a good attitude for a writer to have Some books you walk around and poke sticks at they re designed that way some books you take your machete and hack into the meat and the filth and the hell with any bystanders getting splattered they shouldn t be bystanding so close if their fine suits mean that much to them Some books you can have round for tea with mama So I disagree with rule 1 2 Fiction that isn t an author s personal adventure into the frightening or the unknown isn t worth writing for anything but moneyGarrison Keillor musta got a real fat wad for Lake Wobegon then Likewise Dickens I m not sure what this rule really means Maybe it s just like a tie with a drawing of a fish on it 3 Never use the word then as a conjunction we have and for this purpose Substituting then is the lazy or tone deaf writer s non solution to the problem of too many ands on the pageOkay JF okay Deep breaths put your head between your legs 4 Write in the third person unless a really distinctive first person voice offers itself irresistiblyAgreed I recently jacked in a novel because I found to my horror that it was written in the SECOND person You do this you say that Nooooooooooooo That s just wrong Only one book gets away with that which is An American Tragedy by Theodore Drieser which is uite brilliant But after that one no second person You is firedNow E Annie Proulx look away now 5 When information becomes free and universally accessible voluminous research for a novel is devalued along with itNaw I think I see what he s getting at but naw If you marshall your research well you create a world you re doing good Who was that woman who lived in a box in England and wrote about Alaska I reviewed it too my memory is going down the drain Ah yes The Tenderness of Wolves Anyway that was pretty good So no to rule 5 6 The most purely autobiographical fiction reuires pure invention Nobody ever wrote a auto biographical story than The Meta morphosisSounds like bollocky bollocks to me Does this actually mean anything 7 You see sitting still than chasing afterAh grasshopper you have much to learn Come on JF you re a great writer don t bullshit us 8 It s doubtful that anyone with an internet connection at his workplace is writing good fictionAlso wrong because these days employers can firewall all porn and gambling and social networking sites But here they don t think of Goodreads as a social networking site so shhhh don t tell them 9 Interesting verbs are seldom very interestingHe s galumphing again 10 You have to love before you can be relentlessThat s from a Christmas cracker i betAnyway The Corrections is one of the few books which made me want to find out what the guy wrote next which was Freedom what a crap title The Corrections has one really naff section where it turns into a stupid farce about post Soviet Lithuania and gangsters and stuff really bad Otherwise I thought it was tough tender relentless even but sadly full of interesting verbs Fail yourself Jonathan
