Remember our post about choosing the central conflict of your novel? Conflict between characters or between a character and an inhospitable environment drive action.

We’ve created an infographic condensing the information on story conflicts we included in the earlier post on the subject.

Infographics on Writing and Publishing
Adventures in YA Publishing has this visual checklist for creating great characters. The tenth pointer, that characters should have real flaws and eccentricities in order to be believable, is a particularly useful piece of advice.
Novel Conclusions also has this interesting side-by-side comparison between eBooks and print, a long-standing point of debate between book lovers. The infographic is now several years old, thus it would be interesting to see what these statistics look like now.
The Write Life has this question-filled infographic on the debate between self-publishing and traditional publishing. Think you’re ready to publish? Then first consider the hard truths about the process acknowledged here. One question in particular stands out: ‘Have you built a community of people who want to buy your book?’ (more on this subject here).
