I absolutely hope that everyone who follows this blog, also follows Janet Reid's blog. In case you don't (shame, shame, shame), she linked to this site.
Here's the blurb from the site:
After over twenty years of writing fiction, I decided to create this website for aspiring novelists, screenwriters and short story writers to help you take your craft to the next level.
Within these walls you’ll find how-tos on characterization, plotting, scene and story structure, dialog, narrative and everything in between, all written from the no b.s. point of view of a working professional.
There are articles on how to find an agent, getting producers or publishers interested in your work, writing outstanding query letters and finding the right publishing house or production company for your style and genre of writing.
There’s also a Downloads page where you have access to free software and ebooks, like How to Format Your Screenplay Like a Pro, and a community forum (coming soon!) where you can ask questions and discuss your work.
Much of what you’ll find here is based on my many years of studying –- and most importantly -- practicing the craft of fiction. And I’ll be contributing new articles on a regular basis.
The site is filled with tons (okay, not that many, but a lot) of articles to help us hone our craft and - most importantly of all - get an agent. I figure if Janet Reid recommends the site, I'd better check it out. Knowledge is power, after all.
