Sometimes, as writers, we might feel a little lost. We might feel like our writing needs a little improvement/practice or that it is simply just missing that special something. This can be particularly frustrating when we don’t have any other writing friends. How can anyone possibly understand what I am going through? How can anyone help me?
Whether you are equipped with writing friends/mentors or not, there are many writing tools available right here on the internet to help you and your writing. As some of you may already know, I created my own writing website to help writers digest and work through their ideas before (or during) the writing process- it’s called To Publish Or Not. The way it works is that writers/authors can submit a brief description of what their book they are writing (or planning to write) is about or you can send in a brief description and a short excerpt of your book. I will respond with a few things to think about, expand upon, possibly stuff to take out/not include, or things that you should be weary about. I make sure to stress that this writing service is to be used solely as a writing workshop exercise. My opinion is mine only and not meant to discourage, nor overly encourage. Oh, and did I mention? It’s completely free.
I also came across another article on NewsOK about four other helpful writing tools available online. Check them out and see what works for you. You never know what will be your next game-changer.
Keep practicing. Write on.
