I spend a great deal of time reading articles about the industry of writing, including articles on publishing, editing, the craft of writing, seeking an agent and more. I just love losing myself in articles about the process and about the journey. I find it inspiring to read about the journeys of other authors as they strode toward publication.
I thought I’d plug my two favourite sites that I subscribe to and receive regular updates from. These two sites have brought me incredible amounts of hope and inspiration countless times.
“…Writer’s Edit believes in strong relationships with our writers. We offer advice, inspiration, feedback, friendship and a fresh and engaging publication platform for emerging authors, without the affiliate sales pitches.”
I love this site because of the wide variety of writing-related topics that they cover. They have articles about fiction, publishing, freelance writing and pretty much everything in between. On any given day you can open your email to see that they’ve shared articles about 5 Ways To Incorporate Multiple Languages Into Your Fantasy Novel (https://writersedit.com/22081/fiction-writing/5-ways-bring-multiple-languages-fantasy-novel/), 5 Steps To Naming Your Characters Effectively (https://writersedit.com/21536/fiction-writing/5-steps-naming-characters-effectively/), 7 Useful Tips For Establishing A Writing Routine (https://writersedit.com/20892/resources-for-writers/7-useful-tips-establishing-writing-routine/), or Impostor Syndrome: What Is It And How Can Writers Overcome It? (https://writersedit.com/20829/fiction-writing/impostor-syndrome-can-writers-overcome/) to name but a few.
On some of my darkest days while working on my novel, Life at the Death House, I found wind beneath my wings in the form of Writer’s Edit articles. I strongly suggest that people subscribe for their emails.
The site also offers a listing of writing opportunities/competitions that are coming up.
My other favourite site for articles on writing and everything, and I mean everything, related to the industry of writing, is Writer’s Digest. This site is for the very well established magazine which always features such great articles and inspirations.
I remember following Jessica Strawser’s journey toward publishing her debut novel. It was thrilling to read her journey as she went through the editing process and the cover design process. I looked forward to those articles. I’d finish one and look forward to the next.
I recommend subscribing to the online articles of this magazine, and I also recommend that you get a subscription to this magazine. They offer contests, insight, courses, advice, everything you’d ever need as an aspiring author.
