We are looking for writing tips ... got any?


With National Novel Writing Month (NaNo) starting in just a few weeks, I thought it would be a good time to run a series of posts about writing, specifically tips that would benefit writers before, during, and after NaNo; thus, tips for writing that first draft.

It could be tips about any of the following:

  • Characterization
  • Plot
  • Dialog
  • Pacing
  • Brainstorming
  • Structure

Of course, I'm open to almost anything writing related, even if it doesn't fit into the above categories.

If you would like to offer a guest post or a syndicated post with the above theme, send me an email with the subject line of Writing Tips Post. If you label it anything else, especially "Syndication," I may not even open it, shelving it with the other syndication emails.

A couple hundred words would be a good minimum to shoot for if you are writing it from scratch. You are also welcome to turn in more than one. Please send separate emails in that case, in order that you don't confuse me. (Hint: I'm easily confused.)

Include the following in your email:

  • Name
  • Twitter Handle
  • Link to post (for syndication)
  • Guest Post text (no need for this with syndication of course)
  • If you would like me to promote a book on Amazon along with the guest post, please provide a link to the book on Amazon.com.
  • If you would like to include an author bio, that would be fine.
  • Same thing goes for a pic of yourself.
  • Any other links you would like listed with your bio, such as Facebook or your blog.
