Twitter, Us & Unique Writing Resources
Posted by Angela Ackerman
Hi guys. I just wanted to pass on that I have started up another Twitter Account so that I can share unusual & valuable writing resources that I find. This is a LINK ONLY twitter feed, allowing me to keep links prominent and easy for writers to find, so if this interests you, please follow @WriterThesaurus! Here's a sample of the treasure trove of links that I have shared so far:
A Powerful Search Engine BUILT for Writers
WORDNIK: A dictionary that combines word definitions & social networking, listing live term usage (twitter, photos, etc)
A Downloadable Master SCENE CHECKLIST by Adam Renfro (like a character chart, but for your scenes)
How to Detect a Lie
So, if you think links like these may help you, follow @WriterThesaurus! And if you want to chat with Becca and I, we both have our normal accounts on Twitter. WE LOVE TO CONNECT WITH WRITERS AND EDUCATORS, so please friend us so we can friend you back!
Some of the writing links are already listed on the blog, but I thought this would be a fun way to share what I find as I find it. So far I've discovered and shared some pretty neat glossaries/dictionaries/thesauri links on strange topics to inspire you in your writing! Too, I've listed some neat writing tool and collections in areas that will really help those needing to research. Some you may know about, but others might be new.
So, if you have something unusual you've found and want me to look at and possibly include, put it in the comments here! Or, if you are looking for something--a collection of information on a specific area (crime, a historical era, magic, a list of mental conditions, nautical terms, etc) do let me know so I can keep my eye out for it.
I usually add one or two links a day, Mon-to Fri, so stop by some time. As Twitter won't keep tweets forever, don't forget to 'favorite' tweets you want to keep track of, or bookmark pages to resources in the tweets, whichever you prefer. Hopefully this will help a few folks with writing and research. And if you know other writers who might find the resources helpful, please pass on the word, or RT the links!
