I think some of these are really stupid. I mean if your writing doesn't match this it doesn't mean your righting is stupid it means your writing style is your own. and really who cares if you open with the weather?
Elmore Leonard’s Rules for Writing Fiction -- Ignore the "nevers". Make them "avoids". Never is there to show you that it's overused, but that doesn't mean it should be executed. Write what you want to and what you need to, worry about the reader later when you are yourself reading it.

Honestly, I just want to write books and get published. If they sell, that's cool, but if even one person enjoys them, that's already worth a million bucks!
So You Want to Write a Novel infographic – once you do all that you get to do it all over again! See, this is why most writers are alcoholics/insane.
So You Want to Write a Novel infographic..Love this. I hate it when people find out you're a writer and say "Oh that sounds like fun." I've taken to asking them what they do and parroting it right back to them no matter what it is.

Great example of why students should vary sentences.

so important to teach sentence fluency to all writers! I am SUCH a stickler for editing and making sure writing SOUNDS good and fluid! (Maybe I should have been an English teacher instead...Haha)
writing, sentence variety, sentence length, Interesting for any writer, saved this for myself: This Sentence Has Five Words – Gary Provost
This is why I am not afraid to vary sentence length when I write. It is, also, why I am never afraid to start a sentence with 'and' or 'but. It helps to use various lengths, and more than that - it helps to let the sentences flow naturally. It is always good to remind yourself, as a writer, to not feel constrained by English 'rules'. They are there as a guideline, they are not there to imprison your creativity.

Writing tips ~ and avoid the explanations (why does this hero think that or this and what does he/she mean by this/that). It it dull. Also, the reader either understands it or not. Also, some she, writers like to describe dresses, make up, the beauty of eyes and etc. It is more reasonable to give the description of the face/figure of a hero at the beginning of the story and then never return to this subject again ~
