Online Resources for Writers

If you’re like me, you could spend hours procrastinating by surfing the web. There’s so much great stuff out there to improve your craft, research that difficult-to-find subject matter, call forth one’s muse, find inspiration from others’ work! Yes, that amazing Internet can help with just about everything except writing the actual pages for you.

Since I’m starting a Pacemaker Planner challenge in a week to work on a new book, I was fishing around for websites to inspire me to get into a writing routine again, but along the way I found so much more. So, in the spirit of gearing up for diving in, I’ve compiled some online resources for writers that I found to be helpful.
