The Top 42 Writing Posts Of 2016

At the beginning of every year, we have a tradition of posting our Top 42 Writing Posts from the previous year.

(There was no special reason for the number 42 in 2013 when we started, but we’ve kept up the tradition since then.)

These were the posts you wanted to see on this website in 2016. The articles are written by Amanda Patterson,  Mia Botha, and  Anthony Ehlers.

The runaway favourite was Write Your Novel In A Year – Week 35: 3 Must-Have Scenes That Reveal Character by Anthony Ehlers.
