Good writing advice

Manuscript update: I’m up to 2,480 words after writing yesterday and today. Gotta break now. My dog is complaining that she hasn’t been fed and walked. It’s like she has a clock in her belly.

Just a quick post to say Writer’s Digest blogger Jane Friedman has compiled a great list of writing advice posts from writers and agents.

Like writer Yasmine Galnorn‘s post about how a near-death experience helped her make time to write.

Agent Rachelle Gardner‘s post about working through the difficulties.

Writer Liz Curtis Higgs‘ encouragement for aspiring writers.

And links to posts on crafts, dialog, story structure and much more.

I haven’t read through them all yet, but this is a great page to bookmark and devour.

What’s your favorite blog post that you read recently? Something about craft? Or something inspirational?

Write On!

    Janice Hardy who wrote The Shifter has a great blog with writing advice. On Wednesday she had an excellent one on cutting, which I found very helpful since I’m in the midst of cutting 3000 words. The link is

  2. Cool, Natalie. Thanks for the link. I’m going to put her blog in my Google Reader. I’ve heard of Janice Hardy and The Shifter from her agent Kristin Nelson’s blog. Sounds like an interesting book. I’m sure her blog will be useful.

    Good luck with your cutting. It can be hard, but one thing that helps me is just moving the cut parts to another document, then in my head, my work isn’t gone and I can use it again if I want. It helps me to be more ruthless without the hesistation, because then I can cut to just see how it works, knowing I can always put the words back in.
