Throwing Out a Lifeline

There is so much great information out there!

Sometimes abundant good advice can be hard to sort through. I don’t know about you, but my mailbox is loaded with tips on writing, grammar, blogging and marketing. It’s easy to feel saturated and a bit bloated by it all–a little like you may have felt yesterday after Thanksgiving dinner!We love it all, but can’t eat like that every day.

That’s why I try to pass along the advice that I find particularly helpful at various points in my writing journey. I’ve told you about some wonderful books, Everything by Mary DeMuth and Wonderstruck by Margret Feinberg, for example. And Michael Hyatt’s book Platform has been encouraging and helpful in building mine!

But today I wanted to pass on to all my writer friends one of the blogs that has been especially helpful in the area of writing fiction. I’ve not only read it, but actually put it into practice! The tools are easy to understand and broken down into simple instructions. I hope you will find it as helpful as I have. You can find The Fiction Writer’s Guide to Writing Fiction on Nick Thacker’s site:

Happy Writing!

  1. Yes, at times, I do feel bloated from all the writing tips, blogs, and advice. But if it wasn’t for all this free advice, it would take me a lot longer to learn how to be the best writer I can possibly be. So thank you, Laura for the additional link you’ve added to your post.
    I celebrated Thanksgiving in October, so I’m not bloated today!
    Oh my, I see my name in lights->on your sidebar! Laura, thank you for the plug! 😀


    1. It’s true I’m very thankful for all the advice for writers! You are very welcome for the link. I hope it will be as helpful to others as it has been for me. Happy to promote your wonderful work!
