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:
- Character Development
- Plot Development
- Effective Dialogue
- Don’t Be Overly Descriptive
- Get to the Point
- Control the Pace
- Do Your Homework
- Point of View
- Practice Makes Perfect
- You Must Write Before You Can Edit
- Overcoming Writer’s Block
- When the Story Ends…Quit Writing
This is basically my “12 Step Program for Better Writing.” Hope you find this helpful.
