Writing Saturday; Great Websites and blogs9:56 AM
As a writer, I am always looking for good resources to research my books and to help me improve my writing skills. Here are some of the websites and blogs that I have found helpful and a little bit about them.
Encouraging Emerging Authors.
This is a website I found recently, and it is really good; right now they are doing a lot on poetry. I don’t have a lot to say about this blog as of yet because I found it just last week.
Literary Pursuits, is done by my good friend Jessica. This blog is great for stretching your mind and writing skills. Jessica gives a writing prompt every weekend (this week it is a picture) and you write a short story and post it to your blog. Make sure you add your name to the list so that others can read your work. It is a lot fun, and I can’t wait to see what all of you write about.
A Writers blog, is another one of my favorites. She is an amazing author and she even sometimes posts chapters of the book she is working on.
Random Thoughts, is done by my good friend Arianna. She also posts on writing on a regular basis, and she just finished doing interviews with a bunch of bloggers who write.
Where the Map Ends, has a lot of really great writing tips by a published author. He is really into fantasy and stuff like that, but most of his tips are useful for any genre.
For research, I start with looking things up on Wikipedia. This is not a Christian site, but it is clean (at least all the pages I have read are); I use it a lot to look things up.
Do you know any great writing blogs or websites?
