Writer. Adventurer. Currently working on The Dreamless City, a series of steampunk novels and short stories.
I should mention that this is a list of writing tips I am compiling late at night, not that these tips will improve your nocturnal ramblings. Sorry if there was any confusion.
Maybe I should have titled this post Keys to Writerly Success. Oh well…
Pixar’s 22 Rules of Storytelling – Sorry, you’ll have to check that list out yourself. That’s a bit too much for me to fit in here.
Chuck Wendig – How Story Rebels Against Expectations – This is also known as “fuck the straight line” of story plots. I’ll let you head over to his site to read the full article.
So why did I put this list together? Well, that’s very simple. I was looking for some guidence, and since my fairy godmother apparently has the night off, I realized I was going to have to look for it myself. And after some puttering around, I realized I just need to get back in my chair and finish writing the damn scene. So since I am no longer in need of writerly assistance tonight, I thought I would share the fruits of my labors with others. Enjoy!
