Writing Tools: No Trespassing

By Susan Hanniford Crowley

Writing means recording moments. Even if you are writing fiction, the more you use non-fiction places, moments, feelings, and senses, the stronger the experience for the reader.

Create a writing tool for yourself. Use the photo above as a writing prompt. There are two parts. Write the . . .

For The Love Of…Not Giving Up by Artemis Crow

By Leslie Bird Nuccio

In the last few months I‘ve seen several posts from authors announcing that they were quitting writing. Every time, my heart flopped in my chest, the pain of their decision and what led up to it physically causing me pain because there are times in the past I wondered why I was trying to be a writer, trying to write books that someone might want to read, trying to succeed amid such a full field.

How could I possibly stand out? How could I sustain a career? How could I think I was good enough?

These questions and so many more filled me. The one truth I kept coming back to was . . .

For The Love Of…The Story Question by Artemis Crow

By Leslie Bird Nuccio


One of the first things I do when figuring out my next story, before even plot structure, is the story question. It’s the central topic the story is about and from it flows the plot and the theme and even the character arc.

Yes, it’s that important. So what exactly is a story question? . . .

Checking Out Authors on Amazon

By Susan Hanniford Crowley

Today while you’re last-minute shopping, I want to tell you what there is to see on an Author’s Page on Amazon. If you love a particular author, you don’t have to hunt everywhere for every title. Just go to his or her or their page. Here’s my page so you can see what I mean. To get there, I typed into Google – Susan Hanniford Crowley Amazon Author Page.

By Susan Hanniford Crowley

Just as there are many colors in the rainbow, there are many choices.

For The Love Of…Making People Feel

By Artemis Crow

“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” —Maya Angelou

As a writer, this is a goal that I work on every day; making my reader feel. It’s not always easy for me as my writing is fast-paced, action-adventurey, with a large dollop of world mythology and fantasy creatures that I created. That makes for fun reading, but I have to remember that being on the edge of your seat isn’t the only emotion I’m hoping to evoke in my readers. I also want them to laugh and cry and sigh at the ending; a story well told about people they’ve come to care about. With luck, and some continued hard work on my part, the reader will want to continue reading my series through to the end.

But how do we go about accomplishing this you ask? . . .

For the Love of…Writing Resources, Part 1

By S.H. Crowley

I am a serious book nerd. There, I said it. Whew, it’s good to have that out in the ether.
I have hundreds of fiction paperbacks in all kinds of genres. I probably have a hundred reference books about writing, encyclopedias about the spiritual world, mythology, and on and on. There’s a room in my basement filled to the brim, cabinets are nearly overflowing, plus every built-in in the house has books that belonged to my paternal grandmother. Even her complete set of Jane Austen books, such a treasure.
If you’re a writer, you have your special list of resources; books, articles, notes taken at a conference, an online class. We all do. What surprised me recently was some of my top go-to resources were unknown to two of my writer friends.
What? What? . . .

If You Write, Plan Your Sick Days

By Mandy Rosko

Everyone knows there are some basics that come with running your own business. Even if it’s just a side hustle that brings in some extra cash every month, these rules are key, and should be obeyed at all times.

I might leave a couple of things out, and these aren’t in any particular order, but if you want to know the main one we’ll be focusing on, you need. . .

How to Write A Fiction Novel, Part 7 – Settings Are More Than A Place

By Susan Hanniford Crowley

When writing your novel, you will want to really examine your setting. Some writers make the mistake of info dumping, which gives too much about the setting in one spot in the book. The more experienced author sets the stage with some great sentences where their character is interacting with the setting. That gives the setting more meaning for the reader. You relay how the character feels about where they are or where they’re going through interaction, action and dialogue.

While the story moves on, the character continuously interacts with. . .

How to Write A Fiction Novel, Part 4 – How To Avoid the Squishy Middle?

By Susan Hanniford Crowley

No, we’re not talking about diets. We are talking about the most fatal part of a book, the part where if it’s not interesting anymore, the reader closes it for another day. I was talking to a book reviewer about this topic and was told that’s where they put down the book and they’re done. You don’t want this to happen to your novel. We’re going to go over a some options to prevent this.

In my book Vampire in the Basement, I was working with two couples and a series of helping or hurting characters (good guys and villains). My goal was. . .
