Writing Tips & Tricks Catch-all
Now that this is my third year mentoring for #PitchWars, it’s getting a little difficult to gather up all past info I’ve shared. I figured it was a good idea to put it all in one place, as much for me as for any writers out there who are interested. While some posts are specific to Pitch Wars (and marked as such), most are relevant to all writers on their publishing journeys.
I’ll continue to keep this updated with any new tips and tricks I post, any blog posts that are relevant, etc, so feel free to check back regularly. And, as always, I’m available to answer questions on Twitter. (Please remember the underscore when tweeting me. The non-underscore WriteAsRain doesn’t like to be bothered, to put it mildly. LOL)

The links go to “Access Forbidden”. Is there anyway it can be fixed?
Unfortunately, the few links that display access forbidden aren’t on my website and are the property of another site, so I have no control over that.

This is very helpful. I started with your suggestion to eliminate garbage words. Interesting enough, when I put to find the word “so” I got many words that included the letter “so” and from all of them deleted also the words “also, some, sometimes”. If you agree that these are also garbage words, you can add it next time. Going to implement all the other writing tips. Thanks.
