Disclosure — Advice and Support

If you buy something through a link on this site, and you would like to get some tips on setting it up, or are just curious about best practices, feel free to email me for advice.

I offer this tech support because some of the links on this page may be "affiliate links." This means that I may make a commission -- from Amazon, iTunes, or another company -- if you buy something through that link. This doesn't change the price for you; it's a finder's fee paid to me by the supplier. I only recommend things that I use, love, and know how to help someone else understand.

  • Thanks for the seven days. I had a lot of fun. And you’re so right about workshops. Too much, too quickly. For me, writing is very personal, and to do it in the workshop format has limited value. I prefer working away on my own, and getting feedback when I am ready for it.

  • You’re right about workshops, Daniel. Because of the amount of students in a workshop, I never felt there was ever enough time to dedicate to each story. It usually amounted to “I liked this, I liked that, maybe try this and that.” It’s great if you want initial feedback and critique, but I never felt I actually learned anything other than to try and make my story work better when I want to also be a better writer.

    I wish I was able to complete the last few exercises on the days they were assigned. This was a great series of posts!

  • Why is your blog named ”the incompetent writer”? What does make someone a writer in your opinion? Is it a matter of talent? In my teen years i had turned obligatory literature classes into a warzone, because the teachers were extremely narrow minded. I wonder if your blog can help someone like me.
