Although How to Turn Your Author Website Into a Resource Center Your Readers Can't Live Without from the bookbaby site is targeted at ebook authors, the advice it provides could be applied to any writer website or even their Facebook page. Have a look.

Forcing the Issue: Adding Conflicts to your Scenes from The Other Side of the Story talks about inner conflicts.

The Secret To Your Next Creative Breakthrough from Jeff Goins discusses the balance (or imbalance) between your art and your life.

5 Archetypes for Supporting Characters from DIY MFA talks about the role of the other characters in your stories.

Writing as Catharsis by Nathan Bransford talks about channelling our own emotions and life experience into our writing.


  1. I'll have to check out the supporting characters one. I love minor characters. They can make a story.

  2. And I'll have to check out Writing as Catharsis -- becuase it truly can be!

  3. The Bransford piece was interesting. I agree with him in that many times when writing something particularly emotional, it helps to connect with your character in some way. Doesn't have to be the same exact experience, but rather something that "feels" the same. It gives the scenes more chops, so to speak.

  4. Just read the author website piece. Very informative. Thanks, Fi!

  5. They all sound really good. Thank you for sharing.

    Hugs and chocolate,
