#WW Website Wonders

27 Jan

 

Every month, I share all of the websites I come across that I find helpful, humorous, or just awesome. Below, you’ll find all of January’s Website Wonders categorized into Writing, Reading, Art, and Just Because.

If you enjoy these websites, be sure to follow me on Twitter because I share even more websites and photos like this there.

My favorite this month: Your 2016 Authorial Mandate Is Here: Be The Writer That You Are, Not The Writer Other People Want You To Be:

“Know who you are. Learn your process. Find your way. And don’t let anyone else define who you are as a creator, as an artist, as a writing writer who motherfucking writes.”

Writing:

Writing Generator: Don’t take this too seriously, but it’s a fun website. It can generate a first line, names, and more. Again, please don’t actually use this while writing, but I had a good time losing myself on it for a few minutes.

#Yodify Your Grammar: This was sent to me by Grammarly, and it’s absolutely hilarious!

50 Questions to Ask To Get To Know Someone: Okay. So this is a dating article. But this could be a great way to get to know your character.

Reading:

What We Aren’t Talking About When We Talk About Feminism in YA: A VERY important discussion that needs to be read by all. “Why do find characters who wield a sword but have a soft side to be unbelievable? Why do they have to have masculine traits to be bought as powerful?”

Parents call cops on teens for distributing banned book: It’s an old one, but well worth reading again and again.

25 Best Far Future Sci-Fi Books: Do you love any of these you?

For Many: A poem worth watching unfold

Art:

Jesuso Ortiz Art: They are so cute.

12 Stunningly Real Sculptures: I loved the one with flying faces and books

You know…Just Because:

This Ancient Torture Technique is so Horrifying I Can’t Believe It’s Real: What? I’m a writer. We Google weird things.

These 13 Old Babies and Creepy AF and Not Cute at all: I laughed so hard at this article. Like stupidly hard.

Enjoy!

    I like the questions to get to know people. Always having been an introvert, I found parties difficult. I learned to come up with questions to keep other people talking. I learned a lot that way. Plus I developed a reputation as a brilliant conversationalist!
