Applying Kurt Vonnegut’s 8 rules for writing to user experience

In one of his last books, Vonnegut outlined 8 rules for creative writing––including where to start your story and the job of every sentence. Come see how the rules that Vonnegut used while sitting at a typewriter apply directly to our work as designers, researchers and writers building online experiences.
