Wednesday links: Questions and the New Adult category

I love regularly reading tips and advice articles in certain subjects — particularly writing and publishing. I don’t always need the information right then, but I know that it’ll eventually come in handy. Or at least, I hope it will.

I know there are a lot of other people out there who feel the same way I do, but sometimes it can be difficult to find every useful advice article that’s out there. So I thought I’d bring you a few.

Here are the tips and advice articles that jumped out at me the most over the past week.

1. Write Better Stories By Asking These Questions, from The Write Life: Questions are a good thing when it comes to writing a novel. They can help you determine what’s missing from your story, as well as what may not be needed. Excerpt: “Questions are the key to story. Over thousands of hours critiquing and editing manuscripts, I’ve noticed that there are some questions I seem to ask a lot, which tells me there are some general gaps that many writers have in common in their novel-constructing processes.”

2. Is Traditional Publishing Finally Falling For New Adult?, from NA Alley: New Adult is still a fairly new category in the world of fiction. But it’s one that seems to be gaining traction. Excerpt: “In the last year we’ve gone from sprouting patches of delicate blooms across a budding landscape, to a thriving meadow packed with an abundance of life. And it seems there’s no shortage of worker bees (writers and readers) eager to see New Adult spread its boundaries even further.”
