The Miuccia Prada Rule

Finding something you don’t like in a manuscript is always super interesting.

Instead of deleting it, interrogate it. “Why do I hate this part so much?” It may lead you down a path where you discover something about the manuscript and, ultimately, yourself.

And because I need to name everything, I call it the Miuccia Prada Rule.

Prada always includes a texture she absolutely hates into her collection—“crochet, for example”—exploring why she hates something so much. It’s always profitable for her.
