I love the internet. Where in the world would we be without Google or forums or online critique groups? There is so many amazing resources out there and most of them, I don’t even know about.
So let’s share some of our favourites! Hopefully I have some for you guys, and you have some for me and we can all find something new to help us with our writing.
Here are some writing resources that I love:
1. How to plot a novel in 5 steps – I’ve read a lot of articles about plotting, but this one is by far the best. I’m not a huge “plotter” but I love this post and refer back to it all the time.
2. Twitter – I spend a lot of time on Twitter. When you follow a lot of other aspiring authors, agents, publishers etc, it gives you a really good overview of what’s going on in the writing world. I follow a bunch but in particular, I like:
@KMWeiland & @RaeAChang & @Michelle4Laughs – people to follow who always link to twitter pitch fests and other writerly things that are going on.
@LitRejections – amazing twitter feed that links to agents.
@AdviceToWriters – for great inspiring quotes.

3. Publishers Marketplace – for those who are looking for an agent.
4. Critique Circle – an online critique group that I like.
