To my currently unknown followers;
This blog is dedicated to pretty much everything even vaguely bookish or arts-related. For more information please read the ‘back matter’ section of this page.
This particular post, however is going to be about the few websites I have found so far which really help me understand what the writing craft is all about. They aren’t presented in any order of preference, mind you.
Number One: http://www.novel-writing-help.com/. This website is actually written by a University lecturer who really knows what he’s talking about. It’s quite a good resource and is set up like a basic literary course, a giant help for anyone just entering the field and extending investigatory feelers (like me).
Number Two: http://www.suite101.com/writingfiction. Pretty good as a basic overview of the writing craft. Haven’t had much of a chance to explore but what I have seen is quite good. Any feedback would be useful.
Other suggestions for writing resources are:
- local libraries which usually have writing meet groups for authors
- The Queensland Writer’s Association
- University lecturers in literary courses
- Other authors, if you get a chance to ask.
That’s all I have for the moment, don’t know when my next post will be as exams are coming up soon.
Hope you enjoyed that.
