So I’m just starting to think about how to tell a big, BIG story based on a real-world scandal. Given that I’ve done nothing but medical/technical writing for my entire adult life, developing a semi-nonfiction book seems like a nice bridge. But I know nothing about writing other types of material. What to do?
io9’s Free Advice to Struggling Writers to the rescue. Plot, story, characters, tropes, avoiding cliches–it’s all here. What a great resource. Thanks to Charlie Jane Anders for putting this out there for us noobs.
