Yet More Writing Resources . . .


I’ve had a number of posts here that highlight various modes of advice-sifting.

Sadly, sifting through creative writing advice for the really good stuff often becomes a budding writers full-time job

Still, I try to provide links to resources when I find them and hope folks remember that persistence in writing (and re-writing) as well as reading creative fiction are still the best all-round training tools.

Yet, here I go pointing you toward a previous post which points to three more posts—some with writing tips and some with writing warnings: Writing Resources, Revisited…

And, I’m going to add two more potential sources of writing advice.

One from former literary agent Nathan Bransford: Writing Advice Database.

And, one from Cary Graham, who states about his large list of writing advice that, “One of the greatest resources we have as writers is one another.”: Hone Your Skills. Perfect The Craft.

Last, let me repeat my three Don’ts for budding creative writers:

Don’t pay anyone a penny until you’ve written the equivalent of a novel and even then you should probably wait much longer.

Don’t listen to people who are willing to give you free information until you’ve read some of their creative writing. { blogs can actually count as creative writing :-}

Don’t get caught up in reading writing advice until you’ve given yourself the chance to write what you feel is the best work you can produce.

    Those three Don’ts are more useful than so many of the Dos that people try to pass off as the right way to do things.
