Write well. Write often. Edit wisely.
There’s no need to feel guilty for borrowing tips and taking advice from other writers. Writing is a craft, with tools and techniques passed from writer to writer.
Celebration of a milestone—thank you for reading The Editor’s Blog.
It’s easy for our ideas and writing to become stale or common. Familiar. Even so repetitive or wearisome that we are bored writing stories. Try a few prompts for exploring the wider world in your life so you can create fascinating new worlds for readers.
Encouragement for when you feel you’ll never be as good as other writers.
Take the time to read something for yourself—encouragement for writers and editors caught up in their work.
Encouragement for a new writing year.
Reminder about the National Novel Writing Month and encouragement to try something new.
It’s time for a bit of encouragement. After a summer filled with activities that eat into your writing time, it’s time to get back into the rhythm and flow of creating, of linking events and characters and details into stories that readers clamor for.
A reminder that you can’t fake the skills needed for writing convincing fiction. Learn the craft. Learn both the mechanics of writing and the elements of fiction.
