For Aspiring Writers


The internet is filled of weird and wonderful places and this applies no less for the world of writing.

Here are some of my favourite writing sites

Ten Rules for Writing Fiction by Various Authors on The Guardian website

A load of cheat sheets from the ‘How to…for Dummies’ publisher, summarising the key points for Creative Writing

‘I Write Like’ tells you which famous author you write like

The Books and Authors section on Yahoo! Answers is like another home for me. Without it, I wouldn’t be the writer I am today. The users there often a ton of advice – if your stuck on your plot ideas, want critiques on short excerpts, want to expand your literary knowledge or discuss your opinions about the literary world, post here.
