From Mind to Paper: On Writing and Editing

From Mind to Paper is a blog for writers, editors, and those interested in the English language. It covers a multitude of writing topics, from punctuation and grammar to plot development, character development, and world building. In addition to in-depth articles about various writing topics, this blog also has a number of series posts, which are currently being transformed into a nonfiction series on writing.

Make Every Scene Count: Introduction

Rachelle M. N. Shaw

Over the next couple of weeks, I'll be making posts for a new series blog of mine, "Make Every Scene Count." It will cover tips on making each scene you write a better one. The tips are meant to be tools to help you focus on which scenes are important, both in initial drafts and during the editing process. I'll cover beginning and ending scenes, action scenes, love scenes, and more. The articles will be geared toward fiction writing.
