4 Inspirational Sites for Writers


I thought as all of you either head into NaNo or work on your current projects that you could use some helpful sites that I've come across. 

Here are 4 of my favorite sites for writing inspiration...

Writing Questions Answered is a site for new authors but I find it very helpful and uplifting. Here's a taste of the great motivation you encounter there...




Write About Dragons is a website dedicated to the craft and arcanum of Science Fiction and Fantasy Writing. If you've always dreamed of being able to create fantastic worlds and write compelling stories about such things as magical cats and extraordinarily masculine genies then this is your place.


          

You can watch the lectures of Brandon Sanderson, fantasy author extraordinaire of works like Mistborn and The Way of Kings, filmed during his 2012-2013 creative writing class.

Justin McLachlan's Blog is one of the best tools out there for writers at any level. His articles and clear, concise, and amazingly helpful.  I was lucky enough to stumble across this science fiction author and journalist on Pinterest of all Places. When I clicked on his post about Creating Characters...

+Writers Write is actually a school located in South Africa, but their daily feed is absolutely awesome.  They not only have interesting articles and the funniest writer memes, they also feature blogs and websites from authors around the globe. 

I hope as you venture out into the digita aether and find those places that speak to you as an author, that you come back and share some of them with me.

Happy Writing!  +Raquel Byrnes
