17 This Month for Writers - August 2015

September has begun, which means it's time once again to sum up the month that was. This month, our attention was captured by massive fundraising efforts, cutting huge posts of our novels, and changes to the NYT bestseller lists.

Take a look over the links below, and, as always, tell us of the amazing writing links you find throughout the month by leaving comments below!

Inspirational

Have you heard the incredible story about how YA writers - headed by the amazing Patrick Ness - have raised almost 400,000 pounds (just over US$600,000) for Save the Children? Check it out and donate now.

Looking for something to listen to to fire yourself up while you write? Or inspire you to get back on track when you're succumbing to yet another episode of the latest tv show you're marathoning on Netflix? Take a look at this list of podcasts hosted by authors and get your butt into gear!

Writing Life

Author Maile Meloy wrote a thought provoking article for the Sunday Book Review examining the act of writing for kids when you don't have kids yourself.

While YA and NA are all the rage right now, we loved Will Taylor's essay on why he writes middle grade fiction. It's a great reminder that a love of reading begins before we ever reach the 'teen' shelves.

Looking for something fun? EpicReads has put together a post detailing what YA books you should read depending on your star sign. Having read exactly 0 of the recommendations for my sign, I can't say I agree, but it was a fun way to become aware of some new books. 

Have you ever struggled with writer's block and wanted to slap the next person who told you that the way to get past it was to "just write"? Alexis Radcliff has the post for you as she details why "just write" is bad advice for struggling writers!

Craft of Writing

Justine Ireland has written a down-and-dirty post on getting over yourself and learning to write characters that... well... aren't a carbon copy of you. It's an honest heart-to-heart, and a refreshing reminder to add some character diversity to your work.

Ever struggled with understanding tropes and why, if they're born out of such popularity, they're a bad thing? Take a read of Zoe Marriot's breakdown on what to do with tropes.

Struggling to come up with new ideas? Why not follow Emma Pass' lead and turn to the newspaper for inspiration.

Cutting a major part of your novel is every writer's worst nightmare, but sometimes it just has to be done. Janice Hardy knows how difficult it is, and she's put together a post to help us writers out when the deed just has to be done.

Every novel revolves around some conflict with some villain. Often, it's something intangible, like a big picture concept or an aspect of the protagonist's personality. Sometimes, however - particularly in sci fi and fantasy - resolving the conflict means killing the villain. Biljana Likic examines cheap villain killings and how to avoid them

On Publishing

The New York Times adjusted the way it presents its bestseller lists, separating hardcovers (i.e., new releases) from paperbacks. This is a huge change, and great news for authors with new books going on sale.

It's a well known fact that the people who read YA... aren't necessarily the original target audience. Megan Basham has written an article on World Mag about YA growing up

  2. My Wife divorce me for no reason, Thanks to Dr Brave for bringing back my wife,and brought great joy to my family once again, My name is James Mack. i live in Italy, I`m happily married to a lovely and caring wife,with two kids A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my wife so terrible that she took the case to court for a divorce she said that she never wanted to stay with me again,and that she did not love me anymore So she packed out of my house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get her back,after much begging,but all to no avail and she confirmed it that she has made her decision,and she never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my wife So i explained every thing to her,so she told me that the only way i can get my wife back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for her too So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow her advice. Then she gave me the email address of the spell caster whom she visited.(bravespellcaster@gmail.com}, So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address she gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my wife back the next day what an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my wife who did not call me for the past seven {7}months,gave me a call to inform me that she was coming back So Amazing!! So that was how she came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and she apologized for her mistake,and for the pain she caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster . So, i will advice you out there to kindly visit the same web site: http://lovespelltemple.weebly.com,if you are in any condition like this,or you have any problem related to "bringing your ex back.

    My name is Mrs Queen Okolie,I have to give this miraculous testimony, which is so unbelievable until now. I had a problem with my husband 2years ago, which lead to our break up. when he broke up with me, I was not myself again, i felt so empty inside me, my love and financial situation became worst, until a close friend of mine Kate told me about a spell caster who helped her in the same problem too his name is Dr,Idada. I email Dr.Adala the spell caster and i told him my problem and i did what he asked of me, to cut the long story short. Before i knew what was happening my husband gave me a call and told me that he was coming back to me in just
    2days and was so happy to have him back to me. We have two kids together and we are happy with ourselves. Thanks to Dr.Idada for saving my relationship and for also saving others own too. continue your good work, If you are interested to contact him and testify this blessings like me, the great spell caster email address is doctoradalafireforfire@gmail.com
