Two-Minute Writing Tips

A non fiction book by

In today's busy world - and writers are far busier than the average human being - there is little time for lengthy, detailed, intensive writing courses and writing manuals.

Knowing how rare and fleeting a writer's time is, Alicia Dean posts a weekly 'Tuesday Two-Minute' writing tip on her blog where she shares her knowledge, experience, and wisdom in tiny, bite-sized pieces so as not to squander more than 120-second increments of a writer's precious time.

Now, you can get those tips all in one convenient place. In simple, quick and easily digestible servings, this book shares loads of advice for writers. Tips such as...

. Recognizing and eliminating filter words that distance your reader
. Understanding Point of View - How to fix it and why
. Writing Faster Drafts
. Clearer, concise writing
. Tips for more effective Tweeting

No matter your level, from novice to experienced author, you will find something beneficial in Alicia's handy, quick reminders.

"My collection of writing craft books is impressive. I plan to read them all, when I have the time. Alicia Dean's Two Minute Writing Tips provide invaluable editing advice that I can immediately apply to my writing. Alicia Dean's practical manner of explaining methods to reduce grammar errors and make sentences sing inspired me to utilize her editing services."

~Maureen L. Bonatch, author of the humorous paranormal romance, GRANDMA MUST DIE

"If you're like me, you have a strong desire to improve your writing, but very little time to devote to it. That is one reason Alicia Dean's Two Minute Tips are so invaluable. It's a little nibble of information, not too overwhelming. And it's important stuff! Tips that really help to make your work stronger. Honestly, I receive other daily writing tips in my inbox, but I always skim over the subject line and put them in a folder to read "someday." But whenever I see that Alicia Dean has a blog post sharing her tips, I click on it right away. In fact, even though I follow her blog, I still downloaded a copy of her book to keep as a handy resource. I recommend it highly!"


"Alicia's Two-minute Tips are handy, down-to-earth and useful. I confess that just before I sent in one of my manuscripts for publication consideration, I read her tip about over-use of the word "look" in connection with dialog and dialog tags. I scrolled through my ms to discover (to my horror) "Look" was overused to a fault. I worked hard to edit every one of them and knew that my writing was the better for my effort."

~ Susan Coryell Author of A RED, RED ROSE and BENEATH THE STONES
