Writing Links for 2017

It’s nearly 2017, and it’s time for some New Year’s resolutions!    It’s a time for reflection and self-improvement, and we’re here to help!  While we love you coming back to our blog again and again, there are other, great resources available online for you to take advantage of.  Here’s a solid list of sites that can help you improve your writing in 2017.

Inklyo.com is a great resource for writing advice and inspiration, whether you’re a student trying to get through class or a professional writer trying to get published.  It’s a great site with tips on how to stay productive, and they have in-depth instruction on a number of topics, including how to write a cover letter or a formal letter.  Far be it from me to advertise a competitor – and they don’t do the same one-on-one editing that Wordsmith does – but they’re a great resource.

NaNoWriMo is an annual competition to attempt to write a complete novel every November – it’s National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo.  Their blog, which is published year round and not just in November, is another great source for writing tips.

K.M. Weiland’s blog, called Helping Writers Become Authors, is another great resource.  While her webpage design leaves something to be desired, her actual content is top-notch, talking about how to structure a story, how to write character arcs, how to avoid common mistakes, and so forth.

Novelicious is another favorite of mine, though it’s more about books than writing, per se.  They provide book reviews and lists of books that are becoming movies, tips for writing novels, interviews with authors, lists of hidden gems, writing inspiration, tips on publishing and editing – a fantastic resource for any budding writer.

And of course, Wordsmith Essays is here for you and all your grammatical needs!  Stop by our order page today.
