A to Z Blogging Challenge: Letter F -- Favorite Writing Resources

Update: Letter F 



Originally scheduled to offer readers the first opportunity to solve a Mini Mystery for chance to win a $25 Amazon Gift Card. 


B/C I'm two letters behind I'm working my butt off to catch up and I will be caught up by the end of the day Tuesday or hopefully no later than Tuesday. Unfortunately, I'm just now publishing my post for Letter F ... two days late and if you live on the other side of the world, it's already Tuesday, so my Letter F, is coming to you, four days late. I don't like the idea of offering a prize on a post that I failed to timely publish and therefore readers weren't given ample opportunity to read. I'll still offer the same number of gift cards and all of the other letters will remain the same in the give-a-way, but I'll select another letter as I catch up and add another chance to win. Sorry for the confusion and inconvenience.


Today you get Letter F:


Tonight  Letter G


Tomorrow Morning  Letter H


Tuesday Afternoon or Evening Letter I


Then I'm back on schedule


And the next chance to win a gift card is for the Letter K. 


I will make up the missed opportunity for the letter F. I would like the post to be up longer and timely. Thanks for your understanding.

Some of my Favorite Writing Websites, Writing Tools, & Resources for Fiction Writers:


  1. I truly don't know how I ever lived or assembled anything remotely organized enough that anyone in their right mind could put it all back together again (like after Humpty Dumpty and his great fall) and managed to refer to my upside down, flying chaotic paper trial as the rough draft of a future manuscript  ... that is ... until ... some genius invented the greatest gift mankind. Okay, maybe I'm exaggerating a tad little bit, but Scrivener is the real deal. Now that I use it, I cannot imagine how ever wrote anything without it. Scrivener 3.0 just came out & I've already upgraded. The first two years I barely used any features. Overwhelmed and afraid, I simple stuck with a few minor areas where I felt proficient. Little by little I began exploring and each day I discovered more amazing  features and portals. I was like the Alice in Wonderland, traveling down a new hole each day and discovering a wealth of magic. After using each feature, now multiple times, I have to say the color coded index cards, the status labels and meta data remain my favorites.



  2. I feel certain most of you have heard of Kim Weiland and if you've been living in an underground bunker waiting for the 2016 Presidential election to skip ahead 8 years and perhaps you actually haven't heard of this brilliant author, blogger, writing coach ... make a point of getting to know her -- the sooner the better. She offers a wealth of information on her website/blog for both the novice and experienced author. 
  3. Check her out at Helping Writers Become Authors thank me later. Kim's a fighter, a writer, and a child of god, and a good friend to have in your corner. She's the author many fiction bestsellers, but I'm plugging her non-fiction ... her writing craft books and software today. She's the award winning author of Outlining Your Novel and the accompanying Workbook (I also have the audio version), but what I like best is her newest release. Weiland has released software, available at Amazon Outlining your Novel Workbook Software.  available for a $40 fee can be downloaded on to Mac or PC and you  will be guided to create an outline, premise, general sketches, a plan to get to know your characters, plus and follow the character arcs and a way to keep track of your settings.
  4. This is a secondary site set up by two of the most intelligent, informative, most helpful ladies I've had the pleasure of getting to know since I started blogging. Man, they've come a long way. At One Stop For Writers  Angela Ackerman and Becca Puglisi allow you entry into their private, magical writer's kingdom. Writer's must contribute a nominal monthly fee, but it's definitely worth the surplus of quality information for members only. Access to a multitude of worksheets, all of the thesauruses that put the girls on the writer's map: including but not limited to:The Emotional Thesaurus, The Setting Thesauruses (my fave), Positive and negative character traits +more. And don't forget to visit their daily blog ... they still post writing advice on a routine basis and share many Writing Tools over @ Writers Helping Writers (Formerly The Bookshelf Muse) 
  5. 750 Words
  6. Susan Dennard Resources for Writers
  7. Creative Writing Solutions
  8. Auto Crit
  9. When you're ready to Publish ... if you don't go the traditional publishing route Fast Pencil
  10. For fun and for brainstorming  ... Random Plot Generator
  11. Joanna Penn
  12. 100 Story Ideas ... How to Write a Novel ... Free Novel Outline & More @ Eva Deverell (You don't want to miss this one)
  13. Writer's Knowledge Base


Again, my apologies for the delay. Letter F's mini mystery has been postponed until another day to be announced. The remaining days are still as they were.

The first (next) letter for readers to win a gift card is for the letter K -- help spread the word. The minimum prize is a $25 gift card  to AMAZON,  but depending on how many players we have the amount of the gift card may go up.

This evening I Will post letter G, Tomorrow H and then I be caught up tomorrow,

What is your go to website resource for writing? You know the one you can't do without? The one you always go back to every time you get stuck writing? Do you have a favorite?

  4. Hey everyone!
    I'm so excited. My ex-boyfriend is back after few months of breakup, I’m extremely happy that will are living together again. My boyfriend of 4yr just broke up with me and am 30 weeks pregnant. I have cried myself to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again. Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes, my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time. Generally he is a very nice guy, he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along. He is right we’ve been arguing during the pregnancy a lot .After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change. I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with. I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn’t have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe. He texts me now and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy, he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy.
    I was really upset and I needed help, so I searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Ahmed can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and I did it then he did a spell for me. 17 hours later, my bf came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my bf are living together happily again...
    All thanks to Dr Ahmed if you have any marital, relationship or divorces problem contact Dr Ahmed now and I guarantee you that he will help you. Here’s his contact.
