Fantastic newsletters for writers

Hello there

Welcome to another edition of Unslush Weekly, the newsletter for writers written by real-life me, Iain Broome, just sitting here typing it now.

It's been another busy week here in the writing shed, so all I want to tell you is that I am still adding resources to the Unslush directory I mentioned a few weeks ago. I still think you will like it. And my guess is it will be with you at the start of the new year.

Oh! Should mention that the image above is the homepage for Stoop, which is a great app for managing and reading all your lovely newsletters.

That's it. Nothing else to say.

Enjoy the links. Make good stuff. Forward this to your friends.

Every issue I collect and share the best advice, apps and other shenanigans that I find on my internet travels. Find something useful? Subscribe for free.

  1. Outline your novel in Notion's new timeline view – I already use Notion to plan my writing and this could be just what you're looking for.
  2. A list of fantastic newsletters for writers – Jane Friedman's newsletter readers shared their faves and you won't believe number.... it's Unslush Weekly!
  3. Boost Your Writing Income with Themed Merchandise – the artiste in me thinks this sounds grim, the other 99.5% knows it's a good idea.
  4. Hemingway Editor – powerful app that analyses your writing and tells you what the hell you're doing wrong – sort of.
  5. How To Write A Novel Using The Snowflake Method – an oldie but a goodie and a really good way to nail what your novel is about.
  6. How I grew my newsletter to 38,000 people in a year – so much great stuff here for anyone who wants to build an audience for pretty much anything.
  7. The cluster approach to reading – read several books about the same topic to get different points of view. (via For The Interested)
  8. How to write a killer opening – lots of good, practical tips, as we like it.
  9. How to Make a Fiction Podcast – something that’s not necessarily hard to do, but certainly very hard to do well.
  10. 21+ Ways to Build an Audience Who Will Buy Your Book
