Resources Roundup

Posted by

It’s been a tough week here in India. We lost not one, but two Bollywood stalwarts, both taken by cancer, and both gone well before their time. This year, which couldn’t have been crappy enough already, just got even worse.

I’ve been browsing the Internet quite a bit to take my mind off things, and I realized I haven’t done a roundup of links that might interest writers in quite a while. Here are a few excellent tips that I came across:

If you write nonfiction and your pitches are falling flat, check out this article in Writers Weekly.

Editing a story? Read these tips first.

If you’ve never visited a place but want to write about it, learn about the sites you can use to research at this link.

Written a book and looking for tips to maximize your earnings from it? Look no further than this article!

For those looking to make money with their website, here’s a comprehensive list of the ways.

I often struggle with developing a story idea, and this post really helped to outline why, and what to do about it.

Conversely, if you have too many story ideas, here’s a handy guide to decide which to write next!

And another great tip to make sure you don’t run out of steam on your chosen story idea.

I love writing exercises that help me bring out a story, and this article in Lit Hub had some really good ones that I liked.

Looking for a way to end your essay, blog post or story? Try the tips in this post.

And finally, if poetry is your thing, check out this list of free poetry classes and workshops, from the redoubtable Trish Hopkinson. Her blog is an invaluable resource for poets and fiction writers, so do subscribe while you’re there.

Before I sign off, I’d like to share this piece of micro-fiction of mine, that got short-listed in the SheThePeople Story Awards. Do read and let me know what you think!

That’s all for me this week, folks. Hope you’re staying safe and healthy wherever you are.
