Writes With Tools is a blog devoted to the craft of fiction. When I come across a new tool that could improve our craft--and our stories--I read every single piece of info on that tool from every craft master book I can get my hands on, pull the best quotes, and then distill everything I've learned into a one-stop, after-you-read-it-you'll-know-how-to-kill-it post. So if you need some help with your pitch or your plot or your characters or your . . . chances are, I'll (soon) have what you're looking for. If you found a post particularly helpful to your writing and want to "buy me a coffee," I greatly appreciate it. Maybe I'll be able to upgrade and get rid of those unsightly ads . . .
