Award-winning horror novelist Peter Straub talks about writing tools and “tricks” of the trade.  He talks about the process by which individuals can improve their own individual craft and how their life is actually “on the page.”

In a series of four videos over an hour, he talks about “5 Rules that Keep you from Looking like an Imbecile.”  🙂 It is a light fun talk. As an example, #1 is: Never begin two sentences in a row with the same word. Never begin two paragraphs in a row with the same word. #2 is Rhymes are not allowed. I think you see the trend. 😉
