Today’s Open Pen Post is an assortment of amazing blog posts about writing from you! Last month, a bunch of you commented with two links about writing: one link to a posts about writing from one of your favorite blogs and one link to a post about writing from your own blog.
I know that it has taken me longer than I had hoped to post them, but I wanted to make sure to read every post that you linked to. I enjoyed reading all of them, and I hope you do, too!
Links with Writing Tips
- Five Writing Tips Specially for Homeschooled, Christian Writers (I fall into this Tips category, but most of the tips are relevant for everyone)
- Tips About Writing the Stages of Romance (This was an interesting post for people like me who are not romantically inclined. This could be very help for writing one of my character. Be warned, though, there is a spoiler for Hunger Games at the very end of the post.)
- Where are all the Female INTJs? (This post talked about why female INTJs are almost nonexistent in fiction, and I enjoyed read it. On a related note, I have just read an epic female INTJ: Moraine from the Wheel of Time Series. However, the fifth book has some really inappropriate scenes, so I can’t recommend it.)
- Can you Structure Characters? (First of all, this blog is one of my favorite writing blogs to read. Here she talks about the relationship between Character Arcs, plot, and themes and then talks about three types of arcs.)
- Ways to Recover from from a Writer’s Melt Down (I think we all need this post, okay? If you are not currently melting down from school starting, then save it for later.)
- Tips for Conveying Information without Info-dumping (This was posted by a real editor, so definitely check this link out!)
Links with Stories
- Chapter 1 From Celebrate! Tis the Season! (Amber linked to the first chapter from her holiday novel!
- A Short Stories about Suicide and Preventing it
- He is Never Coming Back (This is a cool short story comparing the stories of Moses to modern day in a very engaging manner.)
