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.
- Guest Post: WriteDis, from GKSihat: There can be challenges involved in writing characters with disabilities you haven’t experienced or aren’t otherwise familiar with, but that doesn’t make it any less important. If you’re in the process of writing a character with a disability, or even if you’re just thinking about it, you’ll want to check out the WriteDis discussion on social media this month. Excerpt: “The problem is that we rarely see them and when we do the portrayal is often harmful and stereotypical. I think that representation of disabled people is important. I think it’s important for us to be able to read characters who are like us and I think it’s important for non-disabled people to see disabled people in all forms of media.”
