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).
