Benedict Nightingale. And no one had to die. It just does. It may not improve your temper, but it fixes something else. It makes you more free. Substituting "then" is the lazy or tone-deaf writer's non-solution to the problem of too many "ands" on the page. I still blush when I come across it. Read it aloud to yourself. If it doesn't spin a bit of magic, it's missing something. Cut until you can cut no more. What is left often springs into life.
Don't let anything else interfere. Not everything needs to be explained. If you really know something, and breathe life into it, they'll know it too. Read it pretending you've never read it before.
Show it to friends whose opinion you respect and who like the kind of thing that this is. Remember that, sooner or later, before it ever reaches perfection, you will have to let it go and move on and start to write the next thing. Perfection is like chasing the horizon. Keep moving. That may be a rule for life as well as for writing. But it's definitely true for writing. So write your story as it needs to be written. I'm not sure that there are any other rules.
Not ones that matter. They may not be what you want to end up doing but you have to master them in the meanwhile. You can choose to be understood, or you can choose not to. Words are the raw material of our craft.

We who write in English are fortunate to have the richest and most versatile language in the world. Respect it.
It is only by writing, not dreaming about it, that we develop our own style. Nothing that happens to a writer — however happy, however tragic — is ever wasted. However, don't automatically give them charge of your brain, or anything else — they might be bitter, twisted, burned-out, manipulative, or just not very like you.
Remember you don't know the limits of your own abilities. Successful or not, if you keep pushing beyond yourself, you will enrich your own life — and maybe even please a few strangers. You can, of course, steal stories and attributes from family and friends, fill in filecards after lovemaking and so forth. It might be better to celebrate those you love — and love itself — by writing in such a way that everyone keeps their privacy and dignity intact. Organisations, institutions and individuals will often think they know best about your work — especially if they are paying you.
