Being a Writer

Writing is an unusual profession that generates a lot of issues in a writer´s life. Look here for advice on the writing life.

Characters

Your characters, their problems, and their motives are the fuel that feeds your plot.

Critique And Reviews

Critique involves working with beta readers to polish your manuscript before you submit it for publication. Reviews are the response from book buyers that you receive after you publish.

Fiction Books

One way to learn to write fiction is to read good fiction. Here I recommend fiction books that are more than just good reads -- they will teach you by example about plot, characters, and technique.

Fiction Writing Shop

Here are recommendations on books and other products of interest to fiction writers.

Genres

Genres are categories of fiction such as romance, science fiction, fantasy, horror, and historical. There are subgenres within genres, and to find your genre or subgenre is to find your niche.

Setting

Setting, which is where your story takes place, can add enormous value to your story. Readers love to experience faraway places and different time periods through fiction.
