Here is the list of my current writing tutorials. At the bottom is a list of pending writing tutorials that I am working on.

I am starting a writers blog (date set for it to begin is 1 July 2013) I know some of you will have heard about it from me before. Now I am scheduling time to get it started. The blog will have all my tutorials, including a load of others, drop in features for people who want some help with particular scenes they have written, notes on preparing manuscripts, competitions and much more.

If you are interested in this, please can you drop me a note with your email that way I can send a blanket email to everyone with the link when it's up and running. I've had so much interest shown, it's hard to keep track of who wants to know about it!

I really hope you can do more of these. They are helping me learn a lot before I start writing.

Thank you for your kind words, I am so pleased you are finding these useful.

I have a nice long list of new ones I want to write so there will definitely be more coming. At the moment I am moving the current ones that are here on dA over to my writing blog. This is because I want a specific area for all my writing resources. That is where all new ones will be added when they are written.

If you are interested in receiving them, please do follow my blog. You can follow by email if you like so you get an alert every time I add a new one. My blog also has the tutorials listed for easy access and an area for Submit a Tutorial suggestion.

There should be some new ones coming in the next few weeks.


Good luck with your writing.

I will do that then. I can't wait to see what else comes up. :3

Thank you, I am glad you will be following my blog. It is always nice to know people are enjoying my tutorials and gaining some insights :)

I am really hoping to get some time soon to create my "free printables" for writers which will be added to my blog.

What hopes do you have you own writing? Do you write just for your own pleasure or would you like to be published? What genre do you write?

Free printables? That would be really cool to have.

I'm just trying to write to enjoy it really. I have tons of little stories that are still laying around and I would like to start writing again. But I want to get more knowledge first and be able to be more detailed. I mostly write in the fiction genre.

Thank you so very much for writing up these tutorials. They have helped me immensely in starting up on my novel Searching For War. Anyway, I just wanted to express my thankfulness. It has helped me understand my own thought process. I hope you continue to write more of these, because I really enjoy them.

Thanks hun for the lovely comments, it really is sweet when people let me know how much they enjoy my tutorials. I never thought they would be as popular as they are.

I will continue writing them, however they are all going to be listed on my Writers Blog (www.theeternalscribbler.wordpr… rather than dA as I want a separate platform nowadays. In fact all new tutorials will be listed there. So if you haven't already I do hope you can pop over and take a look :)

Good luck with all your writing x
