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

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

  • How to write compelling inner conflict: Learn the psychology that will help you get a reader to connect a character's drama to their own personal experiences (Jane Friedman).

  • Save the Cat genres, part three: Desmond Hall talks writers through the story types of "why dun it," "institutionalized," and "superhero" (Writer Unboxed).

  • On sharing work too early: Writing teacher Julie Christine Johnson discusses her "soft tissue principle" theory on how to know when it's time to share your story or even simply parts of it (Writer Unboxed).

  • Self-discovery and writing: Writer's Digest had two variations on this theme; Judith Lindbergh talks about it from the perspective of beginning with fiction, while Nancy Chadwick shares how writing a memoir freed her for fiction.
