Somehow, it's time for the last post of 2017! Wow. Strange to think 2018 is basically here—and what a whirlwind of a year it's been.

But of course, last post of 2017 means it's time to continue Writability's annual tradition of sharing my five top fives. So here we go!

Top 5 Most Popular Posts (on Writability) of the Year

Like last year, I used Google Analytics to find the most popular posts of 2017. Interestingly, while some of them overlapped with last year, many of them didn't.

  1. Why Use Past Tense?
  2. Why Use Present Tense?
  3. Young Adult vs. New Adult: What's the Difference?
  4. Writing Tip: Describe with Telling Details—Setting
  5. How to Write a Great Twitter Pitch

Tumblr is awesome and there's lots of great bookish stuff there. Here are many of the writerly/readerly blogs I reblog the most from.
