The Nickel Tour of How Not To Write

Lots of visitors this last week, so I thought I’d put up a little note of welcome!

But before I start, a quick note of thanks to Dustin Wax for including HNTW on the list of writerly sites in today’s Lifehack post, The Ultimate Writing Productivity Resource. (check it out if you haven’t read it – awesome stuff)

I’m a techie by trade so I’ll be keeping a close eye on Dustin’s new site: The Writer’s Technology Companion.

The Nickel Tour – Just the Good Stuff

HNTW got it’s start as a place for me to put up huge reviews of writing books I’ve read over the course of the last 20 years. You can find those reviews in the aptly named category of Big Huge Book Reviews. The most popular series in the book reviews has to be my 27 part review of Donald Maass’ Writing the Breakout Novel.

If you’re looking for Clarion West posts, you will find them all in the Writing Workshops section of the site.

I watch about 900 feeds now and posts from other places get filed under Others Not Writing

Thoughts On Writing is where I digress. I digress a lot, which is why there are so many posts there. Not sure if that qualifies as the good stuff, but there’s plenty of stuff there to keep you busy. 🙂

One of the strangest posts to get traffic on this site is Cutting and Mixing: Prose-Style Wu Tang. The variety of keywords that brings people in on this one is truly amazing. Of course, I highly doubt they were actually looking for this particular content. It’s an odd post.
