Since we are still in January, I thought I’d take this opportunity to look back over my blog and see which posts people seemed most interest in visiting.
I am always working on this blog, planning content, updating old posts, adding to my ever-growing list of topics, listening to my readers’ requests…so I wanted to see how last year turned out.
It was my best year ever for visitors and comments and I’m so thrilled about that. So I decided to have a look at which blog posts people really loved.
This was a post written by my guest writer Shaina Krevat who shared her advice on the best ways to sneak in character descriptions without slowing down the flow.
She included loads of examples to clearly show the best ways to insert sneaky descriptions.
In this post I discussed what the Bechdel Test is and how to check if your story passes it or not.
I had to write this post after I seemed to find myself inundated with movies and books that blatantly failed this test.
An older post but still very popular it appears.
In this post I discussed the importance of Showing rather than Telling in order to help a reader delve deeper into your story and keep the flow moving.
However, I also covered when telling was preferable.
One of the articles in my World Builder Series.
This article covered things to consider when populating your world with different races.
This is important if you are creating a fantasy world as this can add a deeper sense of realism.
As someone who writes with multiple main characters in most of my stories, I wanted to share my advice on how to manage larger casts of characters.
This is especially useful if you have omni points of view throughout several main characters.
