“A helpful book for new writers and good reminders for the more experienced. The world is rapidly changing and the way in which stories are accessed changing too. Richie covers this aspect in some detail and suggests some helpful ways to consider for reaching out to potential readers.” Christine Costa
Thoughts On Writing is a comprehensive collection of advice, tips, guidance and ideas on the craft of writing. Brought together by research conducted by the author, it covers in detail the core elements of storytelling—premise, characterisation, plotting and conflict—as well as key aspects of the craft that are rarely mentioned in other books on writing, such as prose, world-building and writing fight scenes.
You’ll find chapters dedicated to the mental side of writing, such as battling doubt and maintaining focus, and critical questions and issues for writers to consider in our modern age. Lastly, the book considers methods and tools that you can utilise to help you build your author platform, from blogging to podcasting, as well as ways to help you get your stories published.
New writers will, by the end, have the tools to tackle their writing projects with confidence, and for the more experienced writer, you’ll find new and unique insights and perspectives on this craft we call writing.
