Resources for Writers
This is a page in progress. I’m often learning about new resources from fellow writers, fellow teachers, and students!
Attached is a set of websites for writers collected by Writer’s Digest magazine. You will find some great resources there, but not all are designed for students.
- Creativity Portal – get your ideas going!
- Grammar Girl
- Baby Names – not kidding about this. Deciding on names is really challenging!
- Figment – so many fun ways to get involved with other writers. Lots of great writing prompts and ideas too.
- NaNoWriMo – give it a try! Writing 50,000 words in one month can be daunting. But as Rainbow Rowell said in her peptalk, “that’s a big pile of words.”
- Young Writer’s Program of NaNoWriMo
You have to check out the archived pep talks from great YA writers posted during the last few years of NaNoWriMo.
Also, don’t ignore the dare machine. Click on it a lot. Several random events in my books came from that dare machine.
