Rule 10: play a game.

It's one of the commoner writing strategies. Rhyming is a word game. So is something like
I want to be your shoebox
I want to be your Fort Knox
I want to be your equinox
which is what Catherine Bowman does in "I Want to Be Your Shoebox."

If you aren't inventive, the games are a waste of time. But if you are inventive and you just need a way to get going, a game can be productive.
