    1. I find that difficult to believe, Alex. You excel at so many things. It was an interesting article though.

  3. These are great links! Thanks so much. I particularly liked the one on second book slump. I'm working on a second book in an MG mystery series.

  4. Very nice! I read nearly all of them. The antagonist and the pacing are very interesting. About writer's tools, since you've already showed off you're a programmer, what would you recommend for Middle Age dragons? Besides Dragon of course. i got that one.

    1. The software I hear recommended most is Scrivener. It's not free, but I believe it has a 30-day free trial. Some folks like Y-Writer which I believe is free. Perhaps a post examining some of the available software is in order...

  5. So many links! I'm currently browsing through the article about antagonists. I always have way too much fun writing about the villains in all of my own stories. :P

    1. Writing villains is fun. We probably get the same type of enjoyment out of it that actors get out of playing bad guys. ;-)
