Setting Stories in My Own Backyard
25-Jan-15   By: Featured Author

This article is by Duncan McGeary. I’ve never subscribed to the notion that one must “write about what you know.” I mean, what do I know about a wild pig apocalypses?  Or vampires who evolve?  Or Donner Party werewolves?  Or Bigfoot and gold miners? This stuff is spun out of my imagination, and even when […]

The same way you can foreshadow a future event in subtle passing, and you can do that with a little nifty thing called symbolism. Used correctly, and at the right time, symbolism can add meaning […]

Memorable Characters and Their Flaws
07-Dec-14   By: A. Howitt

Every reader has a certain character whose name, when mentioned, elicits a reaction. Those heroes we cheered on, those antagonists we hated with a passion—we know their worlds and their likes and dislikes. We understand and humanize them, and wish we could invite them over for pizza-and-poker night. Or we curse the gods that we […]

What Writers Can Learn From Soaping
23-Nov-14   By: Featured Author

This article is by A.L.S. Vossler. Recently, I took up the hobby of soaping, which, as you might guess, is making soap. There are three ways of making soap: hand-milled, cold process, and hot process. Hand-milled, which is also known as melt-and-pour, basically involves taking a soap base which someone else has already prepared, and […]
