Writing Wednesday: Writing Advice Roundup

Creating my new blog has given me the chance to review my old blog posts, so I thought this week I would point you to some of my blog posts with writing advice.

Way back in January 2011 I wrote about using index cards to plan your novel.

Then in February 2011 I wrote about my own method of checking character arcs in your novel using a spreadsheet.

In August 2011 I shared some advice from David Baboulene on whether character or plot was most important – guess what? They are the same thing!

In March 2012 I shared a free-writing exercise from the book Writing Down the Bones.

There were two pieces from Writing Magazine: How to Write Your Non-Fiction Book, and Making a Short Story Long.

In June 2012 I wrote about Point of View, and how I was changing my novel to first person. But a year later I wrote about the Restrictions of First Person Point of View.

In July 2012 I shared advice I had found on how to Instantly Improve Your Novel, and The Single Most Powerful Writing Tool You’ll Ever See That Fits On One Page.

In June 2013 I wrote about Revising Your Writing, and then in January this year I wrote Ten Things I’ve Learned About Being a Writer.

That should be enough to keep you busy for a while, hope you find something useful!


About Ann Marie Thomas

Married since 1974, Christian since 1986, 4 children, 4 grand children, disabled with fibromyalgia but was working almost full time until a stroke in May 2010 changed my life completely. Writing poetry and making up stories since I was a child, I only started to write seriously when my children were grown. My main ambition is to write science fiction, but along the way I got distracted by local history and poetry about my stroke. Taking early retirement gave me the chance to concentrate on my writing. My book, Alina, The White Lady of Oystermouth, was published in print and ebook at Easter 2012. The success of Alina led to the publication of Broken Reed: The Lords of Gower and King John in September 2013, and The Magna Carta Story at Easter 2015. I am still writing science fiction - a series of novels called Flight of the Kestrel. For all my author news, see me author blog at www.annmariethomas.me.uk
