DISCUSSION: Writing Tools, Resources & Tips
Hello everyone! So, between being a blogger, student, and creative writer, I write a pretty good amount….and I also make a lot of typos and mistakes. Over the years, I’ve learned how to be a better writer spanning across how I come up with & execute my ideas, writing style, techniques, and editing in general. I thought I’d compile the things I’ve learned, tools I’ve used/heard about, and resources I’ve seen into one big post and share it with you guys! I hope you enjoy and hopefully, it helps you in your own writing…
- Susan Dennard’s Writing Resources
- Writing With Colour Tumblr
- Tomi Adeyemi’s writer website
- Tomi Adeyemi’s facebook group “The Write Place”
- Jordan Rosenfield’s twitter
- writing advice moments
- NaNoWriMo blog
- Write on Sisters blog
- Nail Your Novel
- Fab Freelance Writing blog
- The Writing Kylie
- follow other writers, publishers, agents and editors as sometimes they’ll drop some knowledge on you that will make your writing better and/or you as a writer better
- follow the MSWL (aka manuscript wishlist) hashtag on Twitter for ideas on what people in the publishing industry are looking for book-wise. It’s definitely not the end-all-be-all on what an agent will take, but it can help you in figuring out who to send your book to!
- create a Twitter moment or list, or a collection on Instagram, where you can easily save the writing advice you might see floating around while you scroll through your tl. Also, Facebook has a “save post” option on all their posts (as far as I know) for the things you want to look at later/all in one place.
- get a Google Drive account (it’s free!) where you can easily store all the writing ideas you may have which you can then access from pretty much any device you log into! This is especially good for those who are paranoid about backing up their work and still losing it
And that’s all for the writing resources, tools & tips! Keep checking back here as I’ll be updating the post with new content to help you in your writing, no matter what kind it is! Now, is there a writing resource, tool and/or tip that you use and love? Let me know in the comments below; I’m always looking for new ways to improve my writing! Thanks, have a great day/night and tata for now!!
