Thank you for your interest in the Fiction Writing newsletter at BellaOnline.com. This free newsletter is emailed to you once a week to keep you updated on new articles, which cover the following topics.
- Career information: writing blurbs and synopses, obtaining an agent, working with your editor, and promoting your fiction. The pros and cons of self-publishing and everything you need to know to do it, such as formatting, cover art, and distribution.
- Financial and legal subjects: advances, royalties, contracts, copyright, and plagiarism.
- Writing technique: creating unforgettable characters, plotting with outlines or spontaneously, and how to work with variables such as tension, pacing, conflict, dialog, foreshadowing, and flashbacks.
- Fiction genres such as romance, science fiction, fantasy, mystery, historical, and horror and how they contrast with the so-called “mainstream” fiction. Genres can be combined to great effect once you are familiar with their requirements.
- Issues involved with the fiction writing life such as reviews and reviewers, reader indifference, writer’s block, negative emotions such as fear and envy, how to start and maintain one’s website and blog, and what to expect when attending writing conferences.
