Writer's Flowchart by Kate Hart

Kate Hart has a great flowchart that would make a great addition to any writer's corkboard or taped to their well-organized writing desk.

This is one link that will help you know what stage of writing you are currently working your way through…


Just in case you lose the link or forget to anchor it to your favorites, I have included this link in the sidebar of my blogspot under in “Great Resources for Writers,” which is where I am putting valuable links for improving our writing.

If anyone has Links to add to this list, that is what my blog is all about…finding all the Missing Links.



  1. I post helpful tips on Thursdays, if ever you're interested in taking a look.

    I gave you a shout-out on my blog :)

  2. That's a nice flowchart and sums it up quite nicely. The only thing I might say is missing from that chart is a box including marketability. I mean, no matter how well written (as an example) there's going to be a really small market for things such as dark fiction and homosexual erotica (just pointing these out because yes there are people that read those but finding someone to consider it publishable because you'll only sell like 10 copies to the ten people that would read it is like pulling teeth).

  3. That's a really neat flowchart, and I believe it can be useful to all writers out there. :) I agree with Michael, marketability is very important when it comes to publishing work. You have to make sure that the right audience is targeted.

  4. David - Thanks for the plug on your blog. I went over and read it. I will be sure to take a look at your tips on Thursdays. I may borrow one or two to add to my website page - "Writer's Proverbs" with a link to your blog in the credits.

    Michael and WB - I agree about the marketability, too. Without the right market, even a great work can fail.

    If anyone finds some great one-liners, bits of wisdom for writing, tweet me or send a carrier pigeon my way and I will include them on my site with links to the source (your blog, twitter, or webpage)
