Writing

As stated elsewhere, most of this site is a collection of what I've picked up along the way, or had the fortune to learn from my mentor. What I haven't experienced first hand I have researched.

This is aimed towards someone who is already writing stories of some kind but is still a beginner. Though experienced writers may find my suggestions for combating block helpful, or at least take comfort that you're not alone.

The sections on publishing and marketing have been cobbled together by research and experimentation. It too is a beginners guide to give a basic lay of the land. I've included information about traditional publishing and on-demand as well as a side-by-side reality check.

The links above are fairly self explanatory (And there is a map below) so I need only make one note. At the end of the day you need an editor. This is not a luxury you can do without. If you are submitting to an agent for publishing houses you'll end up with one should you be accepted. If you're going the DYI route find someone.
