Something I tried to set up before the summer, when I knew I’d be away from regular blogging for a few weeks at least, was a series of guest posts by other writers for the Tips series. Guest-Tips was only partly intended to fill a content-hole caused by me being less available for a little while, but also aimed at adding a bit of variety.
The road to hell, etc and I never got the guest tips series up off the ground until now. Tomorrow, Tom Vowler who blogs lots of tips over at How To Write a Novel and who, coincidentally, has a new book out will be doing Tip of the Day.
Guest-Tips is born! Happy Birthday Guest-Tips!
I hope Guest-Tips makes it clear to the writers who read this blog, especially those who find this place through being students of mine and may be a bit over-saturated in the ‘Ashworth school of making marks on paper’, that there are all kinds of pieces of advice, especially about career and process, and writers will disagree with each other about what works best and sometimes trial and error is all we have. Treat the tips as you would treat any feedback – take what it useful and learn from what’s not.
If you’d like to get involved, contact me with your idea. As we’ve been talking so much about money recently, let me say I don’t pay guest bloggers but I do linky linky and am always happy to offer reciprocal content if you’d like it.
