Welcome to the WaRPzone!
My newsletter has moved here to Substack! And it’s got a shiny new title. You will especially like it here if you enjoy writing, sci-fi, and fantasy (but you already knew that, didn’t you?).
My newsletter is about exploring writing techniques used in beloved movies, books, and video games. I approach these topics from my ten years of experience as a developmental and line editor. If you stick around, here’s a sneak peek of some posts coming to your inbox this year:
How to Write Unique Prose: An Analysis of The Priory of the Orange Tree
Seven Unique Magic Systems to Inspire Your Own
Four Tropes to Avoid When Your Villain Has a Disability
How to Write a Redemption Arc: An Analysis of Marvel’s Redeemed Villains
How to Build Your World’s Magic: Six Steps to Get You Started
Exploring Character Archetypes with the Enneagram
How to Write an Unlikeable Protagonist: An Analysis of Final Space
Are we nerding out yet?
Subscribers (both free and paid) receive the Mythological Bestiary—a PDF listing various mythological creatures and where their legends originated.
Paid subscribers get a little bit of extra content (every third month’s post will for paid subscribers only). We’ll see how that goes. I’m new to this Substack thing. But if you like my writing and want to see it ALL, you greedy guts, go on then and buy me a cup of tea.
