Or… What’s going on here?
What’s going on is: I have a bookshelf… or
three four five… full of writing books. Many of them I’ve read. Most of them I have not. It’s time to read them.
But we’re not doing a book-by-book review-type-of-thing here.
I’ve gone through the table of contents and indexes (or indices, if you prefer) of all these books and come up with twelve monthly themes and four or five tools under each theme, one of which we’ll tackle each week.
(Or, at least, that’s how we started. We now post more or less three times a month, Monday . . . Wednesday . . . and Friday, with approximately ten days lapsing between every post . . . unless I’m between posting spurts, giving all I’ve got to finishing a project, in which case such lapses have lasted years but hopefully only last a few months.)
On Wednesdays, we’ll look at how the master storytellers make use of said tool.
And on Fridays, we’ll (*Gulp*) share how we’ve applied the tool to our own writing. It’ll be great.
So… Welcome! I hope we can learn a lot from each other.
THINGS TO KNOW
I consider this site a living document. To me, this means WWT does not repost old posts. If I learn something new about a tool, I just update the old post. So if you want to learn about a tool, just find the tool on the tool page. From there, you’ll find all the information I have on that tool and any links to one-off content (such as comment questions whose answers ran long).
To join the quarterly-ish (that’s still vastly overstating it) newsletter and receive updates and free worksheets and whatnot–including our 19-page Character Development Workbook—click here!
All WWT content is free, but if you like some of it so much it inspires your generosity, you can support WWT here: https://ko-fi.com/writeswithtools.
Last, the FINE PRINT: Something like ninety-nine percent of the external links on this site are Affiliate Links, which means I get a commission if you decide to make a purchase through my links, at no cost to you. In other words, if you’re thinking of buying copies of craft books for your home library anyway, buying said copies through the links on, say, this page is a no-brainer way to help support this site. Thanks!
