Articles on Writing

If this were a book, these articles on writing would be in an appendix.

That's because the material is far too good to leave out, but the content isn't clearly enough linked to other pages to put it with the rest.

Some of these articles are my own, and some are those others will write for me. All are about writing, editing or self-publishing, the general focus of this site.
