Resources for Writers

Freedom With Writing: Sign up for their regular emails which provide leads for freelancing opportunities and advice for writers.  It’s legit; they won’t bombard your inbox with spam and the emails are informative. www.freedomwithwriting.com

Writing.com: One of the more established online communities for writers.  The site is brimming with helpful information, writing prompts and tools, and other resources.  Create a portfolio and request reviews from other writers.  www.writing.com

The Renegade Writer: Voted one of the best websites for writers by Writer’s Digest, this site has a wealth of advice and information for freelancers–especially newbies.  www.therenegadewriter.com

Language is a Virus: Suffering from writer’s block?  Fear not, a quick visit to this website may cure your morphological malady.  It offers writing games, prompts, exercises, and tips that will get your fingers pounding across your keyboard again lickety-split.  www.languageisavirus.com

Hemingway App: This is my favorite writing app.  Type (or copy/paste) a block of text into the web-based app, and Hemingway will identify complex sentences and words, grammatical errors, passive voice, and superfluous words.  It also provides a readability rating.  It will even suggest how to correct these issues.  I use it all the time to make me look like a better writer than I am.  If nothing more, it’s a great way to keep your hubris in check and remind yourself that you’re not yet the next Mark Twain.  www.hemingwayapp.com
