This year I started blogging more actively. I post every Tuesday, writing tips mostly, but also updates on my epic fantasy series, Wardens of the Crystallis. I decided to get back into posting tips because I have a lot more experience now. Not only that, I think I can provide some really helpful advice to writers.
Since it’s the end of the year I wanted to share my top 5 writing advice posts for 2017. The results are based on the number of views + reblogs/likes on Tumblr and this blog.
I still cannot believe the amount of reblogs/likes I got for this post on Tumblr. 1500 and counting!! I’m so happy that people have found it helpful. I had NEVER expected any of my posts to get so many views. In case you missed it, you should really check out this post!
I get at least one view a week for this post. I don’t know if people really want to write blind characters or I’m just getting bots. Nonetheless, it has almost 200 views. I had written this post because one of my point of view characters is blind and I wanted to help other people portray them better.
This post mainly made it on the list because it is linked on the number 1 post on this list. Fight scenes can be a bitch to write. If you struggle with them, checking out my post might help.
I’m so happy that this post made it on the list! It’s so important to include diversity in your books and you can find out more as to why by reading this post.
Despite the fact that this post is about my pet peeves, it’s still contains writing advice. It has all those clichéd fight scenes that would be wise to avoid.
Those are my 5 writing advice posts that got the most love in 2017! Here’s to hoping my 2018 posts will be useful to all you writers.
Happy New Year!
