Articles to improve your writing abilities

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby starkandskinny on Wed Jun 12, 2013 12:10 pm

After a short conversation with some of the other RPG members in the chat, I've decided to share some links I have to interesting articles regarding writing and character development, for those of us who wish to improve. They may not be much to read, but I've found they help me plenty - I actually had to stop and check some of my existing characters\plots and make some serious changes.

In any case, hope somebody finds these helpful. If you have links of your own to share, please do! I'll be reading them, for sure.
