Seven to get started withJan 20
I hope you’ve had a great holiday and New Year’s. I’ve been doing a lot of work on the novel and thinking about where I’d like to go with the blog this year. I’ve committed myself to finishing the novel and starting to approach agents by the spring, so I’m obviously going to be busy.
To kick things off, how about some links to get started.
- Lynn Viehl’s work on Scribd is a good place to look for novel outlining help. She also has the text for last year’s online writer’s workshop she did there. If you’re unfamiliar with her work, then she also has some short stories there as well.
- Writer’s Digest’s 101 best sites for writers is a good place to go for both inspiration and information.
- Ponoko is a site that’s new to me. Think cafepress, but you can design whatever you want here. So if you’ve ever had a great idea you’d like to market, here’s one place to look.
- The snowflake method is one of many ways to lay out your novel.
- Need some medieval inspiration? How about an interesting torture method? Check out Medieval Castles.
- Need a quick ancient history refresher? See the ancient history timeline.
- And if you’ve ever thought your job was good fodder for a book. Read The Tribulations of a Checkout Girl.
