Writing Resources: Part 1

Amber Schamel ~ There are so many, but I’ll name just a few. 
Seekerville Blog
Goal, Motivation and Conflict by Debra Dixon
Rivet Your Readers with Deep POV by Jill Elizabeth Nelson
Books and Such Agency blog
Sarah Brazytis ~ The Doubleday Roget’s Thesaurus in Dictionary Form. Isn’t that the best book ever? Well, I admit it doesn’t have a very gripping story line, and the plot is somewhat loose, but I love that book! 
Next in line would be the World Book Encyclopedia (our 1957 edition is my favorite!) and, of course, Wikipedia. Where would a writer be without them?

Morgan Huneke ~ My favorite writing resource is I’ve learned a lot from K.M. Weiland. She has many different blog series on different aspects of writing, from character arcs to story structure to common writing mistakes. Her blog is extensive and well written. I highly recommend it. I also like The Emotion Thesaurus by Angela Ackerman and Becca Puglisi, though I haven’t had it long enough to really know how great a resource it is yet. And I also love I have a paper thesaurus, but sometimes an online one helps a bit more.

J. Grace Pennington ~ I'd have to say my very favorite writing resource is the One Year Adventure Novel writing curriculum.  I've watched through all the videos multiple times and always find good reminders and inspiration in them.  I also like a book called The Emotion Thesaurus to help me find better ways to describe characters' emotions than simply saying “he was sad.”

  1. Cool resources! I have Roget’s Thesaurus too, and have used K.M. Weiland's resources in the past... when I get into my next "writing mood", I'll definitely be using her website a lot more.
