Welcome to my blog “On Writing.”  This is something I plan to use to provide tips, techniques, suggestions, comments, etc., on the craft of writing.  While the focus is on writing fiction some of the information is applicable to non-fiction, as well.

I’ll begin by posting articles on the following 12 topics:

  1. Character Development
  2. Plot Development
  3. Effective Dialogue
  4. Don’t Be Overly Descriptive
  5. Get to the Point
  6. Control the Pace
  7. Do Your Homework
  8. Point of View
  9. Practice Makes Perfect
  10. You Must Write Before You Can Edit
  11. Overcoming Writer’s Block
  12. When the Story Ends…Quit Writing

This is basically my “12 Step Program for Better Writing.”  Hope you find this helpful.
