Website Wonders

28 Mar

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 March’s Website Wonders categorized into Writing, Reading, and Mind-Blowing.

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

Favorite Article This Month:

The Disposability of Ideas by Maggie Stiefvater

Aside from loving The Ravel Cycle series, Maggie Stiefvater continues her awesome blog (that I also love). This article in particular is great, because I think many writers struggle to write, which makes it even harder to throw out certain scenes…or even whole books. The creator makes the idea; the idea doesn’t make the creator. You can move on, and you can improve. Much love for this article.

Writing:

The EPIGUIDE.COM Character Chart for Fiction Writers: These forms always help out writers.

John Steinbeck 6 Writing Tips: If you are using dialogue, say it aloud as you type it.

40 Words For Emotions You’ve Felt, But Couldn’t Explain: SO many hanker sores in fiction.

14 Perfect Japanese Words You Need In Your Life: Like the one below!

Reading:

If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, He Will Ruin Your Life: A satire piece on If You Give a Mouse a Cookie. I cracked up so hard, since I loved this book so much.

13 Books to Teach You Odd Skills: Because we could all use some more odd skills.

7 of The Most Cheesy Lines of Poetry I Secretly Want My Lover To Use on Me: If you need some cheesy poetry in your life.

INFOGRAPHIC: Inspirational Quotes from Fictional Mentors: “Do or do not—there is no try.” – Yoda

Mind-Blowing:

10 Amazing Powers from Genetic Mutations: Heck yeah.

16 Most Beautiful Trees in the World Will Amaze You: You could write entire stories about these trees. (Okay. So I’m a bit obsessed with trees.)

30+ Natural Phenomena That Actually Exist In Reality! There’s nothing like real-life phenomena to spark fantasy novels.

See you next month!

    Thank you for posting the tree site. Lately, I feel a special connection with nature, and trees are my foremost “new” obsession!

    But great info as always! Thank you for your hard work always unfurling new interesting sites.

      Trees are definitely a part of nature that I obsess over! Love them, glad to share them. 😀
