A Compilation of Articles on Common Advice for Writers

Once again, I've gone through the articles on this blog and created another PDF. This one is about advice most commonly given to writers, but with a focus on concrete definitions for each concept.

Here's a rough outline of what to expect:

Components of a Story
Show vs. Tell
Write What You Know
Kill Your Darlings
The Opening Hook
Critiques

Feel free to download it here. If you'd like to see any other PDFs I've created, you can get those here.

Enjoy!

I don't know if I've asked you this before, but are you putting all these into a book? You should. :)

I don't know. I will probably compile everything into one huge document so people can download just one thing if they like.

Eventually, I might go through all the articles and rewrite them in book/chapter form. But probably not until I've created all the smaller PDFs, plus the one big PDF. There are so many articles to go through! :)
