The 10 rules for excellent writing

Only 6 actually. But I enjoyed the read.
That’s why my first rule for writers is that, as an aspiring writer, you should write every day
Also applies of course to science papers. You will find yourself writing much more papers if you take the habit of writing 20 min or 1h a day. Every day. Every. Day. Really.
[…] you should never send stuff straight to air while it’s still hot. Good writing is a dish best served cold
So true, again. I usually write a quick draft, and then let it rest a few days or weeks, and eventually iterate, correct, improve, iterate and iterate again.
