Get Your StoryFix Daily

By Jennifer Blanchard

Yesterday on the blog StoryFix, creator Larry Brooks gave away one of the most useful tools I’ve found to date: The Single Most Powerful Writing Tool You’ll Ever See.

This tool is essentially a list of everything you need to know about your story before you write it. This applies to writers who want their first draft to be a simple polish away from being ready for publication—for those writers who just want to get it written, this tool will help you edit your first draft.

I subscribe to StoryFix because Brooks knows what he’s talking about. He’s not only a published author, but he’s a story architect and story teller. I know my fiction is a lot stronger thanks to his blog.

The reason I like StoryFix so much is because Brooks offers a formula. He gives you the information you need to know to plan your story.

Now, I’m a firm believer in doing what works for you. If just sitting down and starting to write is the best way for you to get your story written, go for it.

But for those of you like me who need to do a little planning beforehand, StoryFix is a blog you need to read.

If you’re new to StoryFix, here is a list of posts I recommend you read immediately (other than the post on the Single Most Powerful Writing Tool, which I mentioned above):

What blogs do you read that help you write your fiction? Do you read/subscribe to StoryFix? If so, what are your thoughts?

Juat want to say thanks to Jennifer for this incredible review and endorsement, much appreciated. And to say welcome to those of you who take her up on this recommendation. Lots more to come. And much more already there.

See you on Storyfix. Thanks!

PS — typos suck, and I’m obviously not immune (see first word of the previous comment). Apologies. I need to slow down.
