When we think of writers we often go straight to novelists. However there are many different writers. So, this week’s guest post is from the wonderful Brenda Baker from CyberneticBlonde.com who is an amazing poet. Enjoy!
A Writer’s Love Story by Brenda Baker
Writing has become somewhat of a love affair for me. I have to write, if I’m not writing, I’m thinking about writing, or when I’ll get the chance to write again. I sneak it in where ever and whenever possible.
This week’s guest poster is the lovely Sabrina Peppe , a new writer who I was lucky enough to come across recently. Enjoy!
Am I Really A Writer?
by Sabrina Peppe
I am not very confident and don’t post a lot of selfies – bit here I am 🙂
I love to write, I always have! But then why when I try to do a Blog Post, work on my very beginning stage book, or interact with a social media response or statement – I can’t!
Let’s continue with more guest posts! This week’s lovely contributor is T J Muir, here to discuss the layers in your story. She is another writer I met through the 85K Writing Challenge. (look at me being all social!)
Building layers into your story
by T J Muir
One of the things that often separates the majority of writing from the George Martin’s of the world- is the layers of world-building. Every corner of his literary map is completely filled in. It is essential to develop your world and your characters, we all appreciate that. One of the first things I remember learning about writing: for every fact a writer uses, there are ten facts sitting in their pocket.
Continuing with our ever popular mid-week guest posts, this week’s guest poster is the wonderful Julie Valerie who I met when she ran the 85K Writing Challenge.
Find that Perfect Word: Contemplating Word Choice
by Julie Valerie
Writing with clarity and careful attention to word choice is important because words convey meaning. Words have power.

On we go with another mid-week guest post!
by Matthew J Mimnaugh
Greetings Eternal Scribblers,
My name is Matthew J. Mimnaugh and this is a guest post. Today I’m going to be talking about pre-writing, or the various approaches and tools a writer can implement as a precursor to putting words on the page with the intent of sharing with an audience—it’s an important distinction, trust me. This isn’t a list and I don’t cover everything—not by a long shot. Instead, much like my own blog, it’s a smattering of ideas with a general takeaway. So, without further ado, let us begin:
And we continue with our awesome mid-week Guest Posts. I invited Robert Evenhouse from PartTimeNovel.com to share some wisdom. Enjoy!
The One Thing Every Writer Needs to Succeed
By Robert Evenhouse
Behind every good writer is a group of individuals that have helped them get to where they are. I firmly believe this. Consider the Inklings or the group of writers that Hemingway wrote about in A Moveable Feast, writers are born not out of solitude, but community.
I have decided to invite some writers to guest post on this blog, to share their knowledge, their tips and experiences. This week’s Guest Poster is the lovely Stephany Irwin who tells us about what it’s really like during the pursuit of getting an agent.
My Experiences with Literary Agents
by Stephany Irwin
I have heard it said that it is harder to get accepted by an Agent than by a publisher – I’m not sure if this is true, but I can say that both can seem pretty damned close to impossible.
