3 Rules for Great Writing

My friend Aly sent me this quote:

“There are three rules for great writing. Unfortunately, no one knows what they are.”

The above quote, he noted, is an adaptation of the following Maugham quote:

“There are three rules for writing the novel. Unfortunately, no one knows what they are.”
−W. Somerset Maugham (1874-1965)

Do you have any favorite rules for great writing? The comments section is open.
