Last Chance: The 2016 list of the 101 Best Websites for Writers issue is about to leave newsstands, so you'll want to make sure to download your copy today. It's one of the best values you get, as it points you toward resources for any writing topic you can image--agents, creative writing sites, genre writing advice and more. Plus, the issue includes:
  • 8 Simple Steps to Blogging Your Way to Success
  • Best Practices for Writers on Twitter & Facebook
  • How to be a Plotter and a Pantser
  • Tips on building your own email list of fans (and putting it to work for you)
  • The WD Interview: Rainbow Rowell
  • And more!
Also, next week we have a class starting that focuses on Character Development: Creating Memorable Characters, taught by the popular instructor Gloria Kempton. It's an 8-week course that walks through lessons week by week to ensure you learn and to keep you on track. Check it out here.

Finally, I'll be smiling a bit extra tomorrow because it's my birthday. I'm not a big birthday guy, but I do enjoy that it gives me a moment to pause and reflect on my accomplishments in the past year (which are always many but never enough). I hope you also find time throughout the year to reflect on your accomplishments. And if you want to get on my good side, drop me a note on Twitter tomorrow and tell me what you like to write (#HappyBirthdayBrian). I love hearing from all my friends in the writing community.

Take care of yourself and your writing, 2014WritersDigestVerticalWebAd01

7 Ways to Make Your Historical Novel Come Alive

Anyone who's ever written an historical novel will acknowledge that it involves vast amounts of research: books you use, books you don't use, hours on the internet, reams of notes. In many ways, though, doing the research is the easy part. What really makes an historical novel stand out is drawing on the knowledge you've gathered to create a world that is both vivid and believable. Here are seven tips for doing just that.

Creating Picture Books As an Author/Illustrator

I have always loved the relationship between story and pictures. As a child, I would spend hours poring over picture books. In my teens I discovered the amazing world of graphic novels. At university I studied and learned the techniques of film and animation. This love of story led me to an established career as a visual artist in the film industry, and ultimately to follow my dream of becoming an author/illustrator.

What I Would Tell My Younger Writer Self

There's something so appealing about stepping outside of time and having a sit-down with your younger self. You'd save yourself countless years of taking one step forward and two steps back as you fumble your way through the world of writing.

Imagine where you'd be today if you'd only known then the lessons you've learned.

Agent One-on-One: First Ten Pages Boot Camp
(May 19th 2016 - May 22nd 2016)


As many writers know, agents and editors won't give your work more than ten pages or so to make an impact. If you haven't got them hooked by then, it's a safe bet you won't be asked for more material. Make sure you've got the kind of opening they're looking for! In this invaluable event, you'll get to work with an agent online to review and refine the first ten pages of your novel. You'll learn what keeps an agent reading, what are the most common mistakes that make them stop, and the steps you need to take to correct them. The best part is that you'll be working directly with an agent, who will provide feedback specific to your work.

Here's how it works ...

How to Create a Successful Protagonist

The initial idea gives the impetus for the novel, which develops into basic premise for the story. But what transforms premise into story is developing the protagonist, finding the person who'll not only experience the events of the story but will interpret those events through a particular lens and be affected by the events in a meaningful way. Considering other novels and how they've crafted their own protagonists, we can start defining what makes a protagonist effective, which you can apply to your own novel as you discover the character at its heart. In general, let's consider the following aspects of a successful protagonist:

Upcoming Writing Conferences

There are plenty of opportunities for writers to meet agents face to face at writers' conferences and pitch their work in 2016. Remember: Meeting agents in person is a great way to get past the slush pile. If an agent is interested in your work and requests a sample or book proposal, you can write "Requested Material" on your submission, making sure it gets a fair read and consideration.

Know that there are two types of conferences. There are general writers' conferences, that address a variety of subjects, and then there are specialized conferences, which usually tend to focus on a single genre-such as western, romance, or mystery. You will find both kinds in this list below.
