An index to articles about writing fiction and reviews of books about writing fiction.

The more I learn about writing fiction, the more I realize how complicated and challenging it can be to tell an interesting story. A quote from Ernest Hemingway gives me some comfort, "We are all apprentices in a craft where no one ever becomes a master." 

Most of what I've learned about writing has been by studying how-to books about fiction. I'm grateful to authors who have taken time to study the craft and then share their knowledge through fiction-writing seminars, articles, and books. I've reviewed many of the books I have studied over the years, and I've posted the reviews on my blog and at

I've noticed that, although most fiction-writing books offer useful insight into the craft, no one book has all the answers. Some books offer advice that conflicts with recommendations in others, and some advice is more confusing than helpful. In an effort to help others better understand the craft of fiction-writing, I've written a series of articles on the subject of fiction-writing and have posted them on my blog and at

Categories include:

Young-adult fiction

Fundamentals of fiction

Fiction-writing: a learning process

Reviews of books about writing fiction

Happy Writing,
