I woke up to a very nice surprise yesterday. Witty Title Here was voted one of 100 Best Websites for Writers by the popular and oh-so-helpful blog The Write Life. How cool is that?! Witty Title Here earned a spot among some amazing (not to mention high-profile) sites like ProBlogger, The Middle Finger Project, Brain Pickings and lots more of my favorites. (You can see the whole list here.) Needless to say, I’m psyched to be in such good company.
This news couldn’t come at a more apt time, because I just made some major changes to the resources page, where you can find tons of helpful links to all sorts of writing tools and inspiration, including scholarship info, writing prompts, composing and editing software, and other blogs to follow. (Though I’ll have to add more links to that section once I’ve checked out some more of those sites on the Write Life roundup!)
I’ve also included a bunch of great links to sites that compile submission deadlines for things like contests and fellowships. These links are where I find the submission deadlines I include in my newsletter every week, but if you don’t want to have to comb through these listings constantly, you can sign up for WTH Weekly and I’ll send them to you instead.
So take a look at the resources page, and let me know what you think! This page will be updated frequently—eventually with more resources created by yours truly!—so be sure to check back periodically. I’d also love your suggestions for any of the categories listed, plus anything else you think would be helpful to your fellow writers.
And stay tuned for a writing challenge that will kick off in February with the intention of keeping us on track with our writing goals. Now that we’re a few weeks into 2016, it’s a great time to reinvigorate ourselves, whether you just need a little extra motivation or are struggling to keep up with the goals you set for yourself at the beginning of the year. Sound good? See you then!
“We write, not with the fingers, but with the whole person. The nerve which controls the pen winds itself about every fibre of our being, threads the heart, pierces the liver.” ― Virginia Woolf
