HELP FOR WRITERS

writing-center-clip-art-pencil

There are so many places to go to find help for writers on the web, it’s hard to know where to start. In past blogs, I’ve posted links to check credentials of agents and publishers, perhaps even a few links for helpful books. But there are other published writers, agents, and editors that have cool sites where a writer can find some great tips.

  • Let’s start with PubCrawl, where helpful ideas and tips for writing are posted from published authors and things they’ve learned along the way. And even cooler, they’ve started a podcast. Here’s a link to their first one!
  • Next we’ll visit Writers Helping Writers. On this site the authors have created helpful tools, resources, webinars, and a bookstore. And holy-moly, they’ve even listed several thesauruses for sale that isolate certain moods and linked expressions!
  • Whiskey Wine & Writing is another great site. They have articles to read and vlogs to watch. Even though they are taking a hiatus right now, don’t worry, they’ll be back!
  • Query Shark is a blog more specific to helping with queries. Read all the archives to get ideas where you might need help with your own query and read the great articles. You won’t be disappointed, however, I’m not responsible for the fear you’ll fear from those Q.S. teeth!

These are just a few links to get you started. There are so many–many more! Follow other writers, agents, editors, and publishing houses to get great tips or watch for them to post other helpful links to follow. As always, good luck!
