Helpful Links for Writers

 

Every morning I read a few newsletters I subscribe to and always come across articles of interest I feel are helpful to my writing. You would usually find me sharing those articles on my social media – particularly on Twitter and Facebook. But I’ve decided to compile a weekly list of some of my favorites of the week and share them here with you too. I’m sure you will find most of these helpful for your own writing purposes. Do let me know if you find them helpful too!

  1. Very helpful cheat sheets! “Set a milestone and read from there…” this is good, will try setting a goal for how many pages. Usually it’s the mental breakdown that ends the proofreading/editing session 🙁

    1. Glad you found it helpful Bonnie, and boy, do I hear you on the edits! 🙂

  2. Love this!! Wish I could print it off.x

    1. Thanks Judith! You can print anything you want. JUst right click your mouse while on the page and hit ‘print’. Or copy and paste onto a Word doc and save, or print. <3

  3. Wonderful Debby, I have just created a new book mark and this post has gone straight in there to refer to back again and again.. I feel I will be very interested in reading some of these excellent tips you have kindly provided the links here to my friend..
    My head is getting more buried in my writing and Painting than in my WP these last few weeks.. So I have missed being here my friend..
    But going to try and catch up today here.. 🙂
    Sending love..
    xxx <3

    1. So glad to provide you helpful info Sue, and great you made a new book mark. These types of sites will come in handy for you as you venture deeper into your book writing journey. And I know, there are only so many hours in a day. When you’re on a roll with your book, don’t worry about the blog, it will still be there. 🙂 Sending love and hugs to you too! <3 xxx

      1. Much love and MEGA Hugs dear Debby xx

        1. Thanks Sue! Hugs back, coming your way! 🙂 <3

  4. Good list. I’m a fan of Joan’s also. I get some spot-on tips from her for marketing.

    1. Thanks Jacqui. I recently signed up for her informative newsletter. Sacha Black suggested her a great follow. 🙂

  5. Great resources, Debby. I saved the post on 60 Post Ideas. That’s a treasure trove! And the grammar/proofing infographic is wonderful. Thankfully, I can report that I already follow those steps, and I’ll vouch for their effectiveness. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Glad you found them interesting Diana. And thanks for confirming how helpful the infographic is, I thought so too. 🙂 Happy weekend! 🙂 xx

  6. Hi Debby – these look really useful … especially as I don’t know what half the words mean … but I really should. I will be back to check through properly – so really helpful – thank you … I hope all is well your end of the world – well eastwards from here! Cheers Hilary

    1. Hi Hilary. So glad you found these interesting. I think when you find time to go through them you’ll find at least one gem.
      Happy weekend to you. It’s colddddddddd here. 🙂

  7. These are great finds, Deb. I’ve bookmarked every one of them! Thanks for sharing, girlfriend ❤

    1. Yay T! So glad to see you around. Thanks, I thought I’d start a once a week share of my ‘vestigations! 🙂 <3

      1. You’re such a superb sleuth 🙂 ❤️

        1. My superpowers aren’t in top form T, but I”m still keeping one eye out. LOL <3 <3

          1. Your one eye is better than most of our two eyes 🙂 ❤

          2. LOL you crack me up!!!!!!! 🙂 xxxxxx

  8. Wow, thanks for sharing these, Debby. That infographic is mind blowing and now I’ll take a fresh look at my manuscript 😛 My editor said I was missing serial commas. Now I fear I’ve overdone it. Thanks for the links. Great idea to share a link up.

    1. Thanks Lis. So glad you found these helpful. I will be curating more links in future posts since it seems many here like them. 🙂 x

  9. Debby, excellent help for us all!! Thank you for collating and sharing here. I’m bookmarking a few of these for future reference!

    1. Great Annika! Glad to share the good stuff. I think I’ll start keeping lists of great informative articles and share links more often. Bookmarking is perfect. I use Evernote to bookmark and create files with headings so I can just click on them to find what I”m looking for. 🙂

  10. Hi.

    Such an informative article. I enjoyed reading The Perfect Grammar Cheatsheet Infographics. I’ll definitely save it and read it all the time. I also like the alternative words for the top 5 emotions.

    1. Hi Susan. Thanks for dropping by and so glad you found these articles informative. 🙂

  11. A wonderful find, Debby. Flipped, Stumbled and Tweeted.

    1. Thanks for all Hugh. 🙂 xx

  12. This post is fabulous, Debby. Thank you. I see you’ve taken Elna Cain’s advice in doing so. 🙂 Thank you. I enjoyed the helpful headline hints and tried it out on the headline for my next post. It’s not so good, but I did raise it from 27.27 to 33.33. I’m still unsure of how to get it higher. It’s a toughie. The proofreading tips are great too, though I’m not sure about #4. I’ve always considered calories to be quantifiable. Isn’t that what we do – count calories. (Well, I don’t.) I think less of something like jelly or cake or water would be a better example. 🙂

    1. Hi Norah. Glad you checked out the headline analyzer and enjoyed.The more you use it, you will get a better idea how to use. And over 30 is quite acceptable. As for calories, I don’t count them either, lol, mostly concerned about carbs. 🙂

      1. I’ve tried out the headline again this morning with a few different words. It’s goes up and down, but I haven’t gone above that 33.33 yet. I wonder if I should be using key words in the headline. I’ll try that. 🙂

        1. Yes, try the keywords. And try emotive words and I know in other headline analyzers they say numbers help, especially odd ones for some reason. And it is weird how adding one word sometimes can bring the number down. 🙂

          1. I ended up giving up and accepting my 30%. I’ll keep trying with subsequent headlines though, to see if I can figure it out. I learn a lot from you, Debby. Thank you. 🙂

          2. You’re welcome Norah. But remember that anything over 30% is good! 🙂

          3. That’s fortunate! 🙂

  13. This post is a keeper Dg, thanks so much for it and I passed it along, <3

    1. Hi Ellie! Thanks for visiting, and glad you found it helpful. <3

  14. These are great helps, Debby! I especially enjoyed the grammar cheat sheet. I will share that graphic with my students (they need it)! LOL!

    1. LOL, glad you found it helpful Terri. And lovely to see you visit here, especially since you said you’re no longer blogging. 🙂

      1. I’m just taking a long break, Deb! Should be back in May. I still like to read my faves 🙂

        1. Yay you! And so honored you took a bit of your time out to visit here. 🙂 x

  15. You rock, Debby! This is golden. I’ve bookmarked it to revisit often. Thanks for putting this together and sharing it. You’re a bright star and continue to inspire all of us. Cheers to you! XO

    1. Awesome Natalie. I’m so glad you found these helpful. I will be sharing more good finds next week and plan on continuing to do so. What I do is set up a blog draft and when I come across an interesting and different post through my morning reads, I add the article to the post. I think you’ll enjoy the one I’m working on now for next week. 🙂 xxx

  16. Thanks for sharing, Debby. I especially enjoyed browsing the “Perfect grammar cheat sheet”. Most of it comes natural to me, but I had to give the difference between “less” and “fewer” extra attention. Having a poster with this stuff next to the computer would be helpful!

    1. Seems everyone loved that infographic. Most rules we know as writers but sometimes we have those ‘moments’ where we question ourselves. For me it’s the ‘lay and lie’ thing, lol. 🙂

  17. Excellent! It’s so true that the eyes get used to small errors. Reading the text is also a good way to check the pace.

    1. Exactly! And glad you found this interesting Rob. 🙂

      1. Reading the piece out loud really does catch errors that the eye doesn’t see.

        1. Absolutely Rob. I always read my manuscripts out loud at the final draft to catch new things again the eye tends to skip over. 🙂

  18. The ultimate grammar cheat sheet is excellent! semicolons can be tricky.

    1. Glad you liked it Jennie. I’m with you on the semi colons. 🙂

      1. Glad I’m not alone.🙂

  19. This is a great idea to share from those newsletters you get – and we appreciate the effort you’re taking to help other writers!! ♥

    1. Thanks Christy, always happy to share good info! <3
