Help For Writers is exactly what it is – help intended for writers of any level, any genre, with all different strengths and weaknesses.
This year, I’m taking a creative writing independent study – I took the class in my sophomore year – and one of my on-going assignments is going to be to keep this blog updated. I’ll be posting in-depth reviews of writing reference books; these will be selected both independently as well as by my instructor.
I’ll also be posting different writing prompts, a small sample of something I’ve written in accordance with the prompt, tips on how to make it work, and even some starters.
My ask box is always open (even to anons); feel free to ask me any questions you have about writing. I’ll try my best to answer based on what I already know or research until I can get an answer for you.
Once my senior year is over, and I’ve moved on to college, I intend to keep this blog running.
Advice will be based on what’s going on in the literary community if applicable. If it’s National Novel Writing Month – and especially the month prior – you can expect tips on how to keep your novel running; if it’s April and you’re participating in Script Frenzy, I’ll provide links to helpful resources about anything, from formatting to creating that idea for a potential hit movie into words; depending on the popularity of whatever followers I have during April, I may post different resources for those that are participating in National Poetry Writing Month.
I’ll be posting my first book review on “The Golden Book on Writing” by David Lambuth sometime within the next week.
