I came across the website Writer’s Digest recently. I am not kidding when I say that this site, particularly their Articles section, is a gold mine for tips on how to write good stories. There are some great articles, written by authors, that give advice on character development, plot forming, and many other key parts of a story. I could – and have – wasted hours browsing along the “Related Articles” widget.
Here are a few links to my favorites. I highly recommend reading many others.
