Monthly Link Share – Writing Tips from Tolkien

Welcome to December’s link share! I hope you find these links as helpful as I did! 🙂

The first link offers writing tips drawn from one of my favorite authors, J.R.R. Tolkien, author of The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. Tolkien was an absolute master storyteller, and there’s no better way to learn than from the best.

The next highly entertaining article is about making editing fun. With my massive edit for Homeland approaching soon, I figured I better start finding some ways to enjoy editing! 😀

This is a post from my favorite writing website, Go Teen Writers. I love first person for a novel, so this was a great article that helped me improve my first person writing.

As part of my link share, I’m sharing a link to a fellow wordpress blog. Matt Walsh is an amazing and highly prolific writer who publishes well thought-out posts about modern and often controversial issues a couple times a week.

Here’s the link to his blog: http://themattwalshblog.com/

And here’s the first article I read by him, and the one that had me hooked! 🙂  http://themattwalshblog.com/2013/09/11/im-an-introvert-and-i-dont-need-to-come-out-of-my-shell/
