Sorry this post is going up so late! Today’s been kind of crazy. (On the upside, as of like a half hour ago I officially have housing in New York, so yay for not being homeless!)
Since I’ve been writing a billion blog posts lately (again, if you want to check out any of them, here’s a coolio list), I figured I’d do something different for this week’s Wordy Wednesday. So, instead of sharing my own writing tips, here are some of my favorite blog posts with other people’s tips.
Voice is so difficult to talk about, which is ironic. But Ava does an exceptional job here.
I got absolutely addicted to VRoth’s blog freshman year of college (I blame the proximity to finals) and ended up reading every single one of her writing advice posts. This is one that really stuck with me and I’ve worked hard to apply to my own writing.
My CP Kira put together a writing/publishing dictionary and it’s super helpful, especially if you’re just starting out.
Susan Dennard is a queen of writing advice (find more on her blog here), but I especially love this post she did on Pub(lishing) Crawl. It’s an overview of her revising process and brilliant.
Sarah tackles the myth of character questionnaires here and gets down to the good stuff for learning about your characters.
Victoria is a literary agent who also has a wonderful blog. In this post, she talks about the bones of what makes a story, well, compelling. And it’s fantastic.
Well, that’s it for now. Have an idea for a future Wordy Wednesday? Feel free to share it in the comments.
Thanks for reading!
