Writing Resources, part I

Below are some of my favorite writing resources, although upon closer scrutiny perhaps “reading resources” would be a better description.

List I: Facebook pages and groups. Many of these pages correspond to matching websites as well

5. Tudor Book Blog – lots of fun Tudor history facts and news about new Tudor books.

4. Historical-Fiction.com – book reviews and giveaways about a wide variety of historical fiction books.

3. Historical Novel Society – the place for new historical fiction (public group) – wonderful resource for book news and general questions regarding writing in the genre. The downside is that it is so active, that it can clog up your news feed. Warning: results in too many books being added to the “to be read” pile.

2. Writers Write – this is an organization that offers writing courses in South Africa. A little far to travel, admittedly, but I enjoy their writing humor, literary birthdays, writing prompts, and other tidbits of motivation and advice.

1. Writer’s Circle – this is my favorite of the writing-related fb pages I have found. I find daily motivation and resources through their posts. My favorites are the charts they post of alternate ways to say or describe things. I have many of them copied and saved in a word document for later reference. If you haven’t liked this gem yet, do so.

So, writer friends, what resources can you add to this list? What are your favorites?
