Archetype Site Poll & Recent Changes

I'm really curious about what people are looking for when they visit the Archetype site, so I thought I'd ask. If you often come looking for more than one thing, either pick the thing that is most important to you or write about the other things in the Comments section for this blog entry.  Please also leave feedback in the Comments section about  whether you find what you need, what you'd like to see, etc.

A couple of people have asked me recently about the now-defunct newsletter.  I decided some time ago that a monthly newsletter served little purpose when I could post updates and news as often as I like on the blog.  Therefore, I gave up the newsletter in favor of the blog.

I felt the site itself was getting a little unwieldy, so I recently reorganized parts of it, including the Real Psychology and Resources areas.  I also sorted through and pruned some areas that weren't being used very often.  If you find that something you think was really important is now gone, just let me know.

    More specifically than the poll allowed: interesting articles about how psychology ties in with writing, from every angle and in the myriad ways it does, from ideas for never before seen character arcs to elements of common complexes, and also rare and little-known psychological quirks. Areas in relationships and sources of conflict. Ideas from dramatists and theorists (perhaps it was here I first heard of Laurie Hutzler's work, prehaps not, but things like that fascinate me.)

    (Sorry if this appears twice - didn't seem to work first time.)

    There's one more thing which I didn't mention before, but it's interesting (to me at least); and that's reversing the equation: how writers can learn life skills from practising their craft and engaging in writing about close, personal and vital areas of either their own or imaginary lives, and thereby gaining a deeper understanding of themselves. I've found certain writing jobs unbelivably cathartic. Please feel free to delve into this aspect as much as you like and share stories with and about others: always fascinating. Thank you once again :)

    Hey Robin -- thanks for your comments! I will have to look into Laurie Hutzler...

    Psychology definitely ties into writing. People are all inter connected, all joined into this life together. Conflicts and how they affect folks. Problems of all kinds. It's all tied into together. Thanks for this site. I'm an avid fan forever.
