Website Wonders

27 Apr

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 April’s Website Wonders categorized into Writing, Reading, Art, and the Weird.

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

Favorite Article: 6 Hard Truths Every Writer Should Accept.

I really loved how honest and open it was without making the reader fell overwhelmed or inexperienced for not already knowing the information. (Plus, I agree with everything said in the article.) A great, to-the-point piece to consider.

Writing:

The Power of Words and How To Build Your Vocabulary: I hear questions about building one’s vocabulary a lot, so here is an excellent article about it.

12 Useful Websites to Improve Your Writing: Use these at your own discretion, but I thought it was a fun list to explore.

An Affective Beginner’s Guide to Writing Books (An Infograph): I love infographs. I simply cannot help myself.

Creative Writing Exercises: This is a virtual list of other writing exercise lists.

12938347_578632518970803_936326365534059914_nReading:

10 Phenomenally Tricky Books Everyone Should Read: If you’re feeling particularly tricky this month.

10 Incredibly Useful Books You Should Own: Your library is going to grow from these lists!

Art:

Visually Arresting New Sketchbook Spreads and Drawings by Pat Perry: I found these disturbing in a delightful way.

The Weird:

Here Are The 50 Most Ironic Ways People Have Died. Seriously, Don’t Die Like This.: I often say that so many things happen in real life that we can’t put in fiction, because readers wouldn’t believe it. This article is a perfect example for the morbid character in you.

40 People From The Internet Reveal An Unexplainable Moment From Their Lives: I love little stories like this, especially in the middle of the night.

5 Superpowers You Didn’t Know Your Body Was Hiding From You: Who doesn’t love superpowers?

See you next month,

    I love these posts and visit every website posted. I was particularly interested in the website about words. Just yesterday, I used a reference in my own writing on the “smell that comes after a rain, ” and went back and inserted petrichor into the text.

    Great post as always!
