Yeah, yeah, I know: two announcements in that many days. Maybe I should start a category just for them?

Anyway, today’s announcement doesn’t have to do with my blog. It has to do with an online event, and more specifically, a Wattpad online event.

A Little Bit of Everything Wattpad & Writing Tips

A Little Bit of Everything Wattpad & Writing Tips

As some of you know, the Wattpad Block Party is an online event, held on the Wattpad profile of its host – USA Today bestselling author Kelly Anne Blount. Due to her participation in a program called Wattpad Futures, she had to remove the posts from the older Wattpad Block Parties from her profile.

That includes the post I’m sharing here today.

It has several tips on cover design, titles, blurbs, writing in general, Wattpad and creativity and motivation, and I think it will be useful to those of you who want to read up on these topics, but don’t want to jump from one blog post to another in order to cover them all. Some of these tips will only be useful to wattpadders, but others can come in handy for non-Wattpad writers as well.

Now let’s get started Continue reading

100 Tuesday Tiny Writing Tips – A List of ALL Tuesday Tiny Writing Tips

100 Tuesday Tiny Writing Tips by Dilyana Kyoseva (CatMint5 on Wattpad) - A List

Last week I posted the hundredth tiny tip on my blog. It will be the last of a series that’s been going on for two years.

Does that mean there will be no more writing advice on my blog?

Of course not!

I’ll keep posting tips, just not in the TTWT format. The posts will be a bit longer and more detailed. But we are not saying goodbye to the shorties just yet. Today I’m posting a list of ALL one hundred Tuesday Tiny Writing Tips, sorted in categories so it will be easier for you to find the topics you need help with. The categories (in alphabetic order) are: Blogging, Characters – Names (tips only on naming your characters), Characters – Tips (tips on creating and developing characters; everything but naming them), Creativity/Productivity/Motivation (for the days you don’t know what to write about), Editing (editing and proofreading), Fans/Readers (how to connect to them, how to get feedback from them, what not to do to your community), General Writing Tips (tips that don’t fall into the other categories), Marketing, Titles, Wattpad (these might apply to other similar apps/websites). Some of the tips will only be present in one category and some will appear in several categories.

And now, for the list Continue reading
