Writers’ Treasure is Back

After two and a half months of non-existence, Writers’ Treasure is now well and truly back. In fact, it will be stronger than it was previously, so you can now expect to see at least one post weekly (and sometimes even two).

The reason for no posts? Well, there wasn’t just one, there were many. First came the school exams, second came vacation (holidays), and third came a cough, cold and fever that happened thrice. Ouch.

But explanations are tiny, aggravating things, not to be bothered about (*as I’m sure you’ll agree*). What matters most is that Writers’ Treasure is now once more The Definitive Guide to Creative Writing Success, not a blog which is dead.

So what can you expect to see in the following days and weeks? A whole lot. Firstly, I prepared (for the first time) the article schedule for Writers’ Treasure. What this means basically is that I prepared a series of post ideas so that there could be no writers’ block (yeah, a post coming on that soon).

The exciting thing about the schedule was that in preparing post ideas, my brain seemed to explode, and I found 106 post ideas to write (all quality ones, may I add). This will probably last the whole of the year 2011 (if I follow it), and therefore, solves the problem of no posts for months (not that that ever was a problem to begin with, mind you).

Now, the only thing left to do is to write all of them 🙂

Easier said than done, I know, but I’m up for the challenge. Stay tuned for Be Aware of the Reading Level of Your Audience, the last post of Writers’ Treasure in 2010.

I’m looking forward to growing Writers’ Treasure.

Thanks for reading,

Idrees

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.

What Do You Think of the New Logo?What Do You Think of the New Logo?

Logos have never been my strong point in design. But they help in branding, so I made a logo a month ago for this blog. However, the old one’s colours didn’t match perfectly with the website colour scheme, so I thought “well, I’ll make a completely different one.” So I recently made a new logo which replaced the old simplistic one.

This one stands out a little more. If you’re reading this via email or a feed reader, go to WritersTreasure.com to view the new logo.

I am changing my domain nameI am changing my domain name

…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.
