    Three Rules for Writing a Novel

    I'm reading a book called Three Rules for Writing a Novel: A Guide to Story Development. The title is hilarious because its taken from a quote by Somerset Maugham. 'There are three rules for writing a novel. Unfortunately, no one knows what they are.'

    I'm wondering what is actually written in this book if the aforementioned quote is at the very beginning. Funny.
