I do not have any principles when I write.  I have learned that writing comes naturally without any bullshit.

I'm unsure how "principles" automatically become "bullshit". Care to expand upon that connection?

I write without incumbrance. I write outside of the rules of writing that others follow.

I wasn't asking about rules others follow. I was asking if you had three principles you follow.

There's a bit of a difference. You could have, you know, stumbled across them yourself?

I write.

There are no principles, so far as I know.

What I have to offer to the craft is something I have always offered.

I do not write the characters so much as they write themselves; I have learned that the character takes hold and I no longer have control.
