Some highlights from the past 8 years

It's less than five hours before this post goes live, and I'm undecided over what to write. No good topic comes to mind, so I'll link some of the popular blog posts from over the years. Feel free to pick and choose what you like.

Beginning writers might find Showing & Telling and The Snobbish Rules of Fiction helpful.

If you're new to critiques, try What's a Critique? It includes a list of abbreviations and critique lingo.

Do you struggle with info dumps?

Would you like to write faster?



What is author intrusion, and how do you avoid it?

This post was about my experience with plotting.

For those who need to brush up on grammar, try this page. It's a list of links to all the Grammar Police posts I made.

Here's a post with plenty of tips for surviving book signings.

This was a fun one on how to catch skunks.

If you know any readers who want to support authors but are reluctant to review the books they read, send them here: How to Write a Book Review.


Thanks for visiting. 
I hope you and yours are happy and well.

  3. Hey, at least you're posting, something I haven't been keeping up with at all as of late.

    I'll check out those fast writing tips, but I suspect that slow writing will always be a part of who I am. I've gotten better about using little notes about what I should come back and fix later when I write, but at some point I still have to fix those things, and figuring out how to fix them is where my progress grinds to a halt.

    1. Sort of. My mom and her neighbor caught 11 of them from under her shed. The neighbor carried them off and turned them loose.

  7. I love the Grammar Police on Facebook. It is incredible the mistakes people do make some of which never get caught.

  8. Thanks for a great bunch of tips! How to write a book review - something that should be straightforward but can be surprisingly daunting even for authors, so I'm sure that's worth a read.
