Introducing Story Hospital

Readers! Especially Readers Who Are Also Writers! Here is a blog you might want to know about:

Longtime Awkwardeer Rose Fox has started an advice site for writers called Story Hospital. Every week Rose answers a question from a writer who’s struggling with a work in progress or with writing in general. The site’s tagline is “Heal your relationship with your writing” and it reads a lot like a relationship advice column, with a balanced mix of writing tips and deeper analysis of what leads writers to feel blocked, anxious, or uncertain about their work. So far the site has covered being your own muse, writing peer-reviewed papers while feeling overwhelmed by academia, patching plot holes in novels, and figuring out when to let go of a script draft that’s just not working out, among many other topics relevant to both fiction and nonfiction writers. The site is supported by Patreon and patrons get cool perks, including inspirational postcards and access to a priority question queue. Rose has been a professional writer, editor, and book reviewer for 20 years and is overflowing with great advice. Take a look at their site, and if you’re having trouble with writing of any kind, ask them a question!

    Will Plot finally admit to Character that he’s been having a torrid affair with Setting for the last two years? Can Author recover from this horrible pain in the Synopsis in time for Nanowrimo? Will Agent forgive the Mysterious Stranger whose Elevator Pitch gave her a concussion?

    (But seriously, this is a great idea and I intend to follow that blog religiously.)

  4. Oh, this is especially timely for me. Or, well. This is always timely I suppose.

  5. Oooooh this looks like a VERY interesting thing! Thank you Captain!
