The Power of Ten

Since today happens to be the tenth of June, let's celebrate by rounding up some excellent writing articles that each give ten pieces of advice. Nice bite-sized chunks.

Why do we like lists like these? Maybe because it seems more manageable than say, 37 things to remember. So here they are.

From Holt Uncensored, we have Ten Mistakes Writers Don't See (But Can Easily Fix When They Do).

Writer's Digest gives us an excellent list in 10 Disciplines for Fiction Writers.

Author and Editor Mary DeMuth spells out 10 Common Writing Mistakes she sees as she works with her writer-clients, and her wise take on What It Takes to Become a Master Writer.

On Wordpreneur, Steven Barnes, author of twenty novels, explains Writing 20 Novels (in 10 Easy Steps!).

Professor Old Silly gives us 10 Ways to Keep Your Prose Strong and Simple.

For those anticipating getting published in the future, new author Gina Holmes shares 10 Things You Can Do Now to Promote the Novel You Haven't Even Sold Yet.

And though it breaks my string of articles about the number ten, I think all the writing moms out there can appreciate the Routines for Writers post: Over 30 Ways to Keep Kids Busy So You Can Write.

Have you come across other writing posts with the power of ten? If so, feel free to post a link in the comments.
