The publishing experts we follow have plenty of craft advice to offer. 

Here are the ones that we thought were can't-miss for our authors:

  • Effect and cause: Donald Maass encourages writers to think about it in this order — that is, ask yourself what you want readers to feel, and then focus on the external circumstances plus the character's inner condition to create that feeling (Writer Unboxed).

  • Writing artificial intelligence as a character in a novel: Author John Be Lane shares the process he used to create a characterization of technology that made sense to readers (Writer's Digest).

  • Point of view versus perspective: Jason Hamilton uses examples to help clarify the differences between these two commonly confused ideas (Kindlepreneur).

  • The first rule of Write Club: Cathy Yardley takes the movie Fight Club, which in her opinion inspires strong feelings but never ambivalence among viewers, and applies its lessons to writing (Writer Unboxed).
