Writers collect inspirational resources like a low-lying pond collects water: from anywhere around. Here are three writing resources that I recommend you try for helpful advice.
Author C. Hope Clark is a South Carolina novel writer with several book series (Edisto Island Mysteries) to her credit. Her Funds for Writers is on the Readers’ Digest list of 101 Best Websites for Writers. The emailed newsletter comes in either a free edition or an expanded paid edition. It lists contests and funding sources for writers. Following Hope’s own active marketing, and prolific writing habits, can also teach newbies, and more experienced writers, a bundle of useful tips.
Joan Dempsey is a writer and Editor with several online courses. I recently enrolled in her Revise with Confidence course and found it well organized and quite helpful. You will likely see some improved blog posts here as a result of my participation in Joan’s course.
I had previously read several books recommended by Joan. One I had not read until recently was Several Short Sentences About Writing (Verlyn Klinkenborg, Vintage Books, 2013). This is an easy-to-read book of common sense about writing. I am sure I will reread it a number of times in the future.
