Goldberg's rules appear to be based on those developed by Jack Kerouac , whom she cites several times. Kerouac developed 30 "rules" in his Belief & Technique for Modern Prose.  While Kerouac's "rules" are elliptical and even cryptic for beginning writers, they are more comprehensive than Goldberg's for those who have practised prose writing for some time. Kerouac supplemented these with his Essentials of Spontaneous Prose,  and together they form the basis of his prose writing method, a form of narrative stream of consciousness . Kerouac himself cites the "trance writing" of William Butler Yeats as a precursor of his own practice.
