Writing resources

The links in this section are a bit unconventional, but they're the best I've found for really getting writers thinking about the craft of writing. You won't find any lists of bullet points about how you should "write what you know" and "show, don't tell". These aren't about being diligent or avoiding procrastination. They're about writing as art, craft, and science.

You may note that many of the advice pieces are nominally about television and film. Trust me: they're just as applicable to short-form and long-form fiction. The key components of story transcend any medium. Many of them are also quite long (particularly the FILM CRIT HULK pieces), but well worth the time it takes to read them and think them over.

Publishing resources

If you plan to self-publish, you need to become a publisher. That may sound obvious, but think for a minute about what publishing entails. These experts will help you through every step of the process, ensuring that your finished book is something you can really be proud of.

Surprised that I recommend other editors? Don't be! No editor on earth can catch every single error in a manuscript. I highly recommend working with at least two editors: one for line edits and copy edits, and one for proofreading. You'll be glad you did.
