Tips for Writing Style and Tips That Will Improve Your Novel

If you’re working on some writing before the end of the year, I would like to share some helpful links.

In 10 Steps to Perfecting Your Writing Style, author K.M. Weiland discusses 10 Laws of Flow from Baz Luhrmann on her Helping Writers Become Authors website.

Melissa Donovan lists 42 Fiction Writing Tips for Novelists, a page I found through this post by author Jean M. Cogdell.

Happy writing!

    I think I’ve collected over 100 writing tips now in my “How to write a novel” tipsheet. I wonder how many I’ll actually get to apply?

  2. With regard to #5 in 42 Fiction Writing Tips (5. Don’t write for the market. Tell the story that’s in your heart), this is advice that is given out a lot.

    You can write the story that’s in your heart and affect a smaller number of people more deeply, or you can write for the market and sell more books. You can tell your best story, a story that may stand the test of time, not numbers, or you can tell the story that will make the current ratings (if you’re able to write to popular demand).

    The choice is yours, but obviously, writing the story that is in your heart is, in the long run, better for the art and better for humanity.
