K.M. Weiland on Climax and Character

K.M. Weiland is a novelist and blogger who has devoted tremendous effort and time to helping her fellow writers develop their own stories, especially through her site (on the blogroll to the right of this post), and through a series of helpful videos on Youtube.

This video’s topic is especially relevant to me, because I have a much easier time starting a compelling story than finishing it satisfactorily. I think her latest advice will serve me well, and maybe it will help you, too. There are over a hundred videos she has done, just on the topic of fiction writing, and I think I’ve seen about half of them. If you want some friendly advice on improving your writing, go check out her blog and Youtube channel. I think you’ll like what she has to say.

A Motivational Manifesto

Need a little motivation to keep writing these days? I know I do. That’s why I appreciated this manifesto from K.M. Weiland, for those hard times when a storyteller needs a little shove in the right direction. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I did.

Be sure to check out the rest of Weiland’s website. It’s a very helpful place to get more advice from a fellow writer, and her kindness and professionalism are unparalleled.

Catch you all tomorrow! I’ve got a little something in the works…as soon as I figure out what it is, I’ll let you know.
