…and the focus of this blog. Previously it was just a fiction writing blog, with web talk and general natter added. Now I have expanded it to a creative writing tips and techniques blog. Conscise writing, grammar and style, technical writing etc will also be discussed here.

Previously the domain name of this blog was schoolboyauthor.wordpress.com. Now I have imported all of its posts here (with a few exceptions) and deleted that blog. The new domain shall be WritersTreasure.com. I have decided to use self-hosted WordPress.org blogging software. I will also change the design, because the previous one wasn’t at all satisfactory.

Hopefully, this will all be for the better, and this blog will get more traffic than the old one ever did (because I didn’t do any marketing even though my content was very strong – this debunks the myth ‘build it and they will come.’)

Stay tuned for more posts, and the start of the series, Creative Writing 101. In the meantime, you can visit the Writing Compelling Opening Chapters in Fiction series. Even though that was written five months ago, it still contains some very evergreen information.

Many tasks are difficult for writers.

As in, even many parts of the entire writing process are difficult. In fact, nothing is easy in writing. Not even the pros find it easy. All they do is make it look easy, but ask them whether they found it difficult in the beginning and the answer will most certainly be in the affirmative.

Content writing, editing and proofreading, and publishing. All these three tasks sound confusing, but they’re not. Broken down into small chunks, they’re doable. Millions are at least doing it.

Few, though, are doing it the right way.

The reasons for that run in the hundreds. One of the most true come down to time, or more precisely, the lack of it. Who has the time to even write these days, never mind the time to write well, edit and proofread it, and then finally publish it online for others to read.

Writers’ Treasure Redesign: Minimalist, Responsive, Better TypographyWriters’ Treasure Redesign: Minimalist, Responsive, Better Typography

After nearly a year of waiting, the new Writers’ Treasure design is here. Yup, it’s finally here. After last redesigning this blog way back in December 2010, I started work on this design a year ago, but was forced to put it on hold for my exams (see last article). But now, it’s here. And it looks better than ever, don’t you think?

The key features of this redesign are:

  • Minimalist. Over the last year or so, web design trends have rapidly evolved. From clutter and the mess that were three-column designs came minimalism and two-column designs. There’s something so soothing about cream backgrounds and simple two columns… much better than the three-column mess the old design used to be (and not to mention that the new cream background looks so much better than the old oh-so-garish dark blue background). This is a writer’s blog, and now, it really looks like it.
