I knew I had been waiting an awful long time for my Writer's Digest. I thought it should have come sooner than this, but I got it today.
I'm gonna do a spoiler, so if you haven't gotten yours yet . . . look away. Or read on (:
It has 101 BEST WEBSITES FOR WRITERS, in this one, and I always look forward to see what they have in there. This year it's a pretty good one. They've begun separating them into categories like this year "Writing Advice" is there with Grammar Blog, and Predators & Editors. There's General Resources, Online Writing Communities--a number of these I know about or have been on. Agents, Publishing/Marketing Resources, and so on.
Usually I thumb through this magazine to see what there is inside before I actually do any in-depth reading. The WORKBOOK is what I hit first.
Ladies and gentlemen, writers of every genre should get something out of this section of WD. This one has Genre Fiction--4 story structures for Sci-fi, Fantasy & More.
There is also 5 Tips for Creating Characters for Kids--Hey, there you go, for those of you who are working on children's books.
Ooo, Here is one I'd read: 3 Techniques for Crafting Your Villain! And they've got a worksheet here. I'm sure they have one on-line, but my computer has been shuffling things, and deleting some things, so I haven't had anything from them lately. I may have to go and re-sign up.
Well, that's my post for today.
