Creative Writing Techniques

Revised / Updated: July, 2019

NICHE CATEGORY: CREATIVE WRITING TECHNIQUES (30)

Sub-Categories Include: Plot Ideas & the Structure of a Novel; Character & Viewpoint; Description & Setting; Inspirational; and Series 1 which includes Dialogue.

The problem with individual blog posts is that they are here today, and gone tomorrow buried under an avalanche of other posts. So my aim, in creating the Index on my Home Page, is to give my faithful readers a One Stop Shop: a resource that is always available to Inform, Inspire, & Encourage. I hope you will find it to be so.

I take it, as you've come to this Category on Creative Writing, that youre an aspiring author or established writer? I hope that you will find these articles to be of use to you, but also that other Niche Categories will serve as research for the books, blogs and articles you are writing. Links are provided, at the bottom of the page, to posts on Bereavement; Book Reviews; Divorce, Remarriage & Stepfamilies; Family & Parenting; with Personal Growth & Relationships to follow.

REPRINT RIGHTS: THE ARTICLES BELOW MAY BE REPRODUCED - ONLY WHERE INDICATED BENEATH THE TEXT - IN ANY FORMAT, ONLINE OR IN PRINT, ON CONDITION THAT THEY ARE UNALTERED, ARE FOR NON-COMMERCIAL PURPOSES, AND THAT THE FOLLOWING COPYRIGHT LINE AND BIO ARE CLEARLY DISPLAYED BENEATH EACH ARTICLE.
