Members of Hornsea Writers hold a wealth of information on their individual websites. Last week we turned a spotlight on Stuart Aken and his Resources page which, among other goodies, holds a constantly updated Competitions List.
This week we highlight a wealth of blogposts - 32 in all - from Linda Acaster. Thankfully, she's created an Index Page for easy navigation. Within it can be found:
- 16 posts on Writing Prompts, including discussions on each aspect;
- 3 posts on Research: Is it always necessary? Using a "bible", and using character sheets for continuity purposes;
- 8 posts on what to look for during different types of Edits, including Structural, Content, Line edits and the use of beta readers;
- 5 posts on writers' mis-uses which can seriously annoy a reader - Don't Mess With The Reader - including Openings, Sense of Place, Categories of Characters, Seeding Information, and Plagiarism.
As well as her Historical, Fantasy and Horror novels, Linda Acaster also has Reading A Writer's Mind: Exploring Short Fiction - First Thought To Finished Story which, as might be guessed, does what it says on its cover. Jump to HERE for the buy links and to read an excerpt.
