#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!

December’s Website Wonders

23 Dec

A few days ago, I found out that Minutes Before Sunset hit #953 in Fantasy and #935 in Romance-Paranormal on Amazon. It’s very exciting to be in the top 1,000. Thank you for your support! I hope you’re enjoying the read this holiday season. 

Tis’ snowing here in Kansas land.

Today is my half-birthday. I’m simply mentioning it because I LOVE half-birthdays, and I thought that I would celebrate today by sharing a bunch of exciting and helpful websites I’ve come across for readers and writers. (I always share them on my Author Facebook Page.)

I did this last month and randomly throughout the year, but I made the decision to share these articles at the end of every month. This is a little earlier than I’m planning, but I don’t want to interrupt the holiday season with the websites. The articles below are organized by Writing, Reading, and Articles to Spark the Imagination. I hope you enjoy them as much I did.
