Today, since I’m feeling a little lazy and bereft of ideas, I thought I’d share a few of my favorite writing sites with you, in case you haven’t run across them yet and are remotely interested.
I always enjoy Chuck Wendig’s Terribleminds blog. It’s got flash fiction challenges, 25-point writing articles and other goodies. My favorite post so far has been “25 Things Writers Should Stop Doing (Right ******* Now).”
Another favorite is J.A. Konrath’s blog, A Newbie’s Guide to Publishing. Mr. Konrath feels passionately that e-publishing, specifically e-self-publishing, is the future. I love his no-holds-barred approach to posts on this topic. One of many good examples is “JA Konrath vs Stephen King,” which combines thoughts on e-publishing, e-book piracy and cool animated e-book covers in a way that’s sardonic and pithy at the same time.
I like the Stadler Style blog because William Stadler tends to offer a lot of how-to writing advice in this space and I can use all the help I can get. Topics like “How to Keep Your Momentum,” “How to Follow a Scene” and “How to Construct the Perfect Scene” encourage me to keep an eye on this site.
Okay, there are three good ones to get you started. I’d give you more, but it’s Saturday, it’s supper time and there’s barbeque on the table. So, if you’ll excuse me… later!
