Every week I’ll be adding five websites with excellent resources and interesting news for writers.
The Chicago Manual of Style: http://www.chicagomanualofstyle.org The de-facto style guide for fiction writers.
LitReactor: http://litreactor.com/ “LitReactor is a destination for writers to improve their craft; a haven for readers to geek out about books; and a platform to kickstart your writing goals.”
Proper Manuscript Format for a Novel: http://firstmanuscript.com/proper-manuscript-format/ By my good friend Dax MacGregor
Book Country: http://bookcountry.com/ I prefer face-to-face critique, but this is one of the better online crit sites if all else fails.
Good Reads: http://www.goodreads.com The best place for writer’s to network with core audience. This is where people who are serious about reading go.
