What is a New Western
A New Western shares the same setting and themes as a Classic Western, but is likely to be more introspective, downbeat, anti-heroic, and morally ambiguous.

Man with Phone Writing Prompt
The man in this photo writing prompt looks a bit like a fish out of water. He should spark some creative ideas as to how he, dressed as he is, got to where he is. Talk about a mismatch between snappy attire and bucolic surroundings!

What is a Classic Western
There are three types of story in the western fiction genre – what I call Classic, New, and Modern. "Classic" means a Wild West story with heroism.

Describe a Character Struggling Back from Defeat
Here is a text writing prompt for you. Describe a character struggling back from defeat. You never know who has the right stuff to overcome adversity.

The Near-Death Experience of the Classic Western
There are three types of story in the western fiction genre. They are Classic, New, and Modern. Here is the near-death experience of the Classic Western at the hands of the Big Five Publishers of New York City, and its miraculous recovery.

Man Lost in Thought Photo Prompt
Here is another photo writing prompt for you, which illustrates the power of an ambiguous expression. What is this young man thinking? What emotion is he feeling? You could interpret his story a million different ways to fit several different genres.

rec prodBird by Bird by Anne Lamott
A funny, unpretentious, sympathetic look at the writing life. The section on allowing yourself to write a crappy rough draft (so you can get it done in the first place) is worth the price of the book alone.
rec prodHow to Write Descriptions of Eyes and Faces
by Val Kovalin, your BellaOnline editor for the Fiction Writing site. Learn to describe the appearance of the eyes, actions involving the eyes, and how to describe eyelids, eyebrows, and eyelashes. More than 2,000 words explaining 82 color names to assign to eyes. Facial shapes, forehead, ears, cheekbones, nose, lips, chin, and facial hair. Learn how the face shows different emotions, and more!
rec prodThe Killer Angels by Michael Shaara
Best historical novel ever, and I donīt even like most historical novels. Epic and unforgettably intense! Among other things, reading this will teach you how to hook your readers through writing strong character emotion.
