Advice for Writers: 025

Time to get started on another week of greatness. Here's some advice to help along the way.

Ten Things You Should Know About Setting, by Chuck Wendig. From explaining what it is to why setting should be active (so what's setting again?), Chuck offers a great list of setting tips.

Your Home Page Is Not as Important as You Think, by Dan Blank. A lot of authors and publishers (and well, people in general) equate home pages as the most important parts of their websites. While they are important, Dan explains why the home page is only one piece of the puzzle.

The 5 Most Common Author Website Mistakes, by Thomas Umstattd, Jr. The past week brought a lot of information on author websites apparently. I think each of these five common mistakes is on the money.

10 Reasons You Can't Make a Living Writing, by Josh Sarz. If you fall under these 10 reasons, then you probably can't make a living writing either. Or you might need to change your attitude.

The Biggest Danger of Multiple POVs, by K.M. Weiland. I love the novel As I Lay Dying, by William Faulkner, specifically because of the shifts in point of view. However, Weiland explains why multiple POV is not the norm in storytelling.
