New Reader Revelations with Sonja!

MEMENTO MORI - Working Stiffs remembers Leyla Harrison

Do only men have dangling participles? I love reading fanfic–does that mean I'm a good beta reader? Can I get sued for this? How do I get unblocked when I can't even finish a coherent...uh...uh...?

These are some of the questions that this site wants to answer. Every month new articles on writing by fanfic authors will be featured. You're the experts. Some of you painstakingly craft your stories, and some of you just crack your knuckles and start typing. Everyone approaches the writing process differently, and here at Working Stiffs we celebrate those differences.

Who are the brains behind the bytes? Your favorite authors talk to Working Stiffs at length about the writing process, feedback, and controversy in fanfic.
