How many of you get the Writers Digest? I just started getting it, and was amazed at so many of the articles that pertain to writing for children/young adults. I took the magazine years ago, and seldom saw anything I could use. This last issue had 101 best websites for writers, so I thought I would pass some of them along ( not all 101, however.)
The first ones are on "Writing Advice." A couple I already have listed but I'll share them again, anyway.
Editorial Anonymous: http://www.editorialanonymous.blogspot.com/
An unnamed children's book editor gives practical advice about everything from rejections to book promotions, and does so with a bit of wit.
Evil Editor: http://www.evileditor.blogspot.com/
A straight-talking editor dispenses tough-love advice on queries, snyopses, and the first pages of books, and does so humorously.
Long Story Short: An E-zine for Writers: www.alongstoryshort.net
This e-zine gives excellent writing tips and also offers a personal touch that most others don't. The editors of Long Story Short reply personally to every author who queries for advice on how to improve their work.
Novel Journey: http://www.noveljourney.blogspot.com/
There is great advice here from the sites 12 contributors, who offer a collection of interviews with authors, editors and freelancers.
Plot Whisperer for Writers and Readers: http://www.plotwhisperer.blogspot.com/
The always inspiring Martha Alderson helps you work out your plot problems.
That's all for now. I know, I know, 5 out of 101 isn't very much, but if you want to get them all, you'll just have to subscribe to Writers Digest !
I'll be back later with a few more.
