100 sites for fiction writers: #99 - Storyfix.com

This is an ongoing series looking at websites that can be of help to fiction writers with their craft and career.


Sometimes one can feel totally lost as a fiction writer. Beginners often seem to have a million questions and concerns, and even old pros occasionally find themselves stumped with a plot, characterization, or just in the search for the right way to write something. During such stressful times, it can be a boon to find a professional willing to lend a hand.

Such a professional is author, speaker writing workshop leader Larry Brooks, the head honcho at Storyfix.com. If you don't mind shelling out a little money, you can pick up some of his Books about writing or you can attend one of the many writing workshops he heads up or attends, including the Oregon Writer's Colony.

But what if you're broke and can't afford any of that? I'm glad you asked, because writers are notoriously cheap (but that could be because most of us are also not-so-notoriously broke). If that should be the case, do not fret, because at Storyfix.com, there is still a good amount of free information.

It helps to follow the main page of Storyfix.com, because author Brooks treats it like a blog of sorts, with regular articles concerning writing as a business and as a craft. For example, you can check out his article "3 Edgy Little Tips to Make Your Story More Compelling," or his article "Five More Mistakes that Will Expose You as a Rookie."

Throughout this site there are plenty such articles, all helpful in their own way to improve your writing and to help you build a career as a writer.
