The words of @arindown serve as a sufficient stand-in for my own on this subject.

I like the conversation and the premise of objecting to overbearing writing advice; but at the same time, most writing dogma comes from a place of near-universal applicability and shouldn’t be thrown out with the bathwater it has steeped in.

Write, read, grow. Live as an artist, as a Godschild lending meaning to the structure of reality around you. Exercise the order-creating power of the logos through speech, song, and story.

You’ll do well then, I dare say.
