The Top 42 Writing Posts Of 2021

In this post, we share the top 42 writing posts of 2021.

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.)

These were the posts you most wanted to see on this website in 2021.

The top three overall posts were 101 Romance Tropes For Writers, 101 Horror Tropes For Writers, and 10 Powerful Visual Storytelling Techniques for Writers.

The first and third were written by Anthony Ehlers and the second by Oliver Fox. Congratulations on how well the articles have done in 2021.

We have divided the posts into categories for you to explore subjects that may interest you.
