What's Next for This Writer's Blog?

What’s next?
I started this blog in January of 2013 to share my journey as a writer. Sharing my own research about crafting a novel, including my readers in both my victories and mistakes along the way, I hope I have ultimately encouraged people who have a strong desire to put on paper the stories floating about in their heads.

Some of my readers have connected with me through this blog and asked questions about blogging and the behind the scenes pieces of publishing. I have answered each of those requests to the best of my ability and with the notion that I do not have all the answers.

A friend recently “caught up” on reading some of my back posts and told me the ones she found most helpful in writing her first novel. I started thinking about that. What has been the most helpful to new writers? Writers in the process? Readers? Below is a partial list of posts by category. [You can click on any topic to review that post, if you like.]

Here is the real question: What has been most beneficial? What do YOU want to see in the future here?

In other words, WHAT’S NEXT?

Be sure to respond…I have a couple of gift cards to give away! For the drawing, put your comments below, enter them on my Rebecca Waters Author Facebook Page, or email me with your blog suggestions. I’ll announce the winners next week.

In the category of Crafting a Novel, I have multiple entries, including posts on plot, character, point of view, and editing. Among others. Here are a few of the most popular posts:

Another category related to writing might be termed the Business of Writing. These include drafting a business plan, getting the most out of conferences, blogging, publishing, and marketing.

Another popular category is Author Interviews and Guest Posts. Check out these examples:

The final category of posts could be called Personal. These have been part of “my story.”

Be sure to comment. I can’t wait to hear from you!
