Overview

The one thing every agent and editor looks for is a strong, unique writers voice. In Taking out the Trash, I talk about how to find and polish yours.

Tense Persons (POV part 1) covers the pros and cons of writing in 1st or 3rd person, and past or present tense.

Single Spy to Teeming Horde (POV part 2) tackles the pros and cons of writing with one, few, or many POV characters.

A POV Footnote lists the vast number of beginner mistakes that can be avoided by writing in close 3rd person.

And in Writing the Other, I discuss why writers sometimes fail when writing a character of the opposite gender, and how to create believable characters who are different from you.

Meet the Author

Hilari Bell has been called the poster child for persistence. The first novel she sold was the fifth she'd written, and when it sold she was working on novel fourteen. She now has seventeen conventionally published novels with two more under contract, and is now branching into epublishing her backlist novels and her writing tips.

She likes board games and "decadent" camping. (In a pop-up trailer with a space heater, a stove--even a toaster!) She says camping is the only time she gets to do enough reading...though when it comes to reading, there's really no such thing as enough.

She's also a member of the best writing critique group in the universe. (Her opinion, anyway.) And you can find their webpage at http://thewildwriters.com/
