Discover a New Perspective

Back in April 2007, Writer’s Digest Editor Maria Schneider jumped into the blog world to discuss the writing essentials and offer commentary on today’s industry hot topics. Now, a year later, The Writer’s Perspective has taken a step back in time with her pet project. Schneider has excavated the WD archives and posted author interviews from long ago issues, including words of wisdom from Truman Capote, Jack Kerouac, Eudora Welty and Erica Jong.

Besides offering timeless advice from writing greats, Schneider reveals the do’s and don’ts of blogging as well. Check out her 20 Tips for Good Blogging, painless ways to keep it short, and suggestions on dealing with sensitive subjects.

Explore the editor-approved writing sites on her Blogroll to find new strategies for getting published. And for a fun diversion, read Words We Love, generate your own list, and sift them into your own writing.
