Catalog of Fiction Writing Tips

We've organized the tips in broad categories to help you quickly find what you're looking for.

Getting Started

Writing Basics

"Do's and Don'ts" of Fiction Writing

IMPORTANT NOTE: An important thing to remember in the "do's and don'ts" category is to consider the audience you are writing for, and to heed the "writer's guidelines" for any publication or platform you write for.

For example in The Ink Well, we require published stories to avoid themes of brutality, rape, abuse and violence. Please see the first article below for our stance on this in The Ink Well Community.
