Articles about Writing

If you're like me, you enjoy reading articles and books about writing. They are interesting and you can pick up some tips that will help you with your own writing. Sometimes the information you get contradicts other information, but I think that is because no one way of writing suits everyone. So you pick and choose and try different methods until you find what works for you.

At the website, Writers Write, you will find a page of writing articles covering all sorts of topics. Dip into them and see what you find!

Historical Research for Your Writing

If you are interested in writing about places and times not your own, you might find Times and Places a helpful site to visit. The link is to a page with some general articles at the top, followed by more specific groups of links. Try it out and see if it works for you!

At A Celebration of Women Writers you can find writings from women throughout time and all over the world. I've only begun to look at it myself, but it looks like enough reading to keep you busy for a long time! Like at Times and Places linked above, you may find information and ideas here to help your own writing.

Are there one or two websites about literature and/or writing that you really like? Feel free to leave an url in the comments!
