Unconditional Awesomeness
per month

Thank you for supporting karenwoodward.org, you are unconditionally awesome!

As a thank you, within 24 hours (probably within an hour) I will send you my book, "The Structure of a Great Story," that is on sale on Amazon.com for $2.99.


This offer may change, depending on how many people signup. If anyone subscribes for an entire year, I will send you another ... something! I'm not sure what yet, but you're awesome and I want to send you things. :-)

The Writers
per month

Thank you, thank you, thank you! My blog is surviving because of you. You don't have to, but please feel free to send me a 2,000 word story--or section of your novel--and I'll tell you what I think. 

Don't worry, I'm very nice, but I will tell you where the energy lags, if there are problems with character introductions, if the structure is a bit wobbly, and so on.

Note: This is a one-time offer. As soon as you pledge at this level, please send me your work. If you would like me to critique some more of your work, I would be happy to. Just contact me (either here or over at Twitter (@woodwardkaren) and we will work out the details.

A Clean Well-Lighted Place
Limited (15 remaining)
per month

Help me keep the lights on! I post about 7,000 words a month to my blog, which means I spend hours writing, editing and publishing every day. 

If you like my work, please consider supporting me. This payment is only once a month, which comes to $0.50 a day. That is about a third of the price of a cup of oh-so-delicious coffee.

You will receive my undying gratitude, and be able to request a critique of 2,000-ish words EVERY MONTH. This could be a short story, or it could be 2,000 words of your work in progress.

I'll keep this up for a year from today, so things may change on October 10, 2020, but if they do I will consult with all of you first and make sure you are each happy with the changes.

About Karen Woodward

Writing is my passion. At present, KarenWoodward.org has over 1,300 articles on the topics of writing, publishing, story structure, how to choose an editor, how to write a terrifying horror story, podcasting, narration, the best MS Word macros, as well as how to get the most out of Scrivener, and on, and on.

And they're all completely free. 

Currently I publish about 5 blog posts a week as well as writing prompts I put up on Instagram[link]. Each post takes me between 1 and 4 hours to write, revise, edit, format and create an image for. If you would like to contribute to my digital tip jar and help keep my blog going, that would make my day!
