Welcome to my tips, suggestions and resources for writers of all types.
I write too and one of the reasons for this Pearl is my frustration of not finding writing resources on the net easily. It's a time staking process and by the time you have found what you were looking for, you are no longer interested. I hope to make it easier for you.

The big idea

Today’s post goes out to all those Write Nonfiction in November (WNFIN) participants writing a complete nonfiction book in 30 days or less. It’s also for all those who signed in as WNFIN participants with the hope of winning Rochelle Melander’s new book Write-A-Thon: Write Your Book in 26 Days (And Live to Tell About It)– but didn’t–because they wanted to utilize the tips it offers this month while they composed their book. (To see who won, read this post .) Rochelle is my guest blogger today, and she offers five steps for successfully writing a book in a month.
People who want to write a cookbook contact me all the time.

If you haven't, you must be so new to popular fiction you don't know dick about it. Did "don't know dick about it" make you blink a little? Yes, that was intended to shock you. Erotica is shocking, if you're new to it.
If you are writing a creative nonfiction essay or a fiction story, writing an outline can be a good way to organise your ideas before beginning. An outline for a story, however, is different from an outline for a research paper. Take care as you write your outline not to make it overly detailed as too much rigidity can kill your creative impulse.
In this article I will discuss how to plot your novel, from first ideas to a completed outline. ( Articles Index ) I'm currently putting together a how-to book containing updated and revised editions of all my articles on writing and publishing, plus a lot of new material.
