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

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. 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
