A collection of links to sites involving writing and authors. More to come.
NaNoWriMo - I love this site. The challenge is to write 50,000 words in the month of November. They even have a segment of the site for young writers, as well as forums with all kinds of writing help available! Check it out, and see if you’re up to the challenge!
Script Frenzy - NaNoWriMo’s sassy little sister. Its challenge is to write a 100 page screenplay in April. Due to poor funding, it had to close down, but the forums are all still up, with people willing to answer questions about plotting and formatting screenplays. I’ve taken this challenge and succeeded for the last 3 years it was running.
Writer’s Digest - one of my favorite magazines regarding writing. They have all kinds of information and tips about writing and getting published anywhere in the industry.
All Freelance Writing - A great resource for freelancers. All the info you need is right here.
Fantasy & Science Fiction Magazine - This is my personal favorite magazine about fantasy and science fiction. Here you will find movie, book, and author reviews, but they are a little less informative and filled more with short stories in the genre, by both new and famous faces.
Locus - one of the best science fiction and fantasy informational magazines, ever. You can learn what’s going on in that genre of the business and read reviews of books, authors, and movies. They also give information about publishing in that genre. Essentially, if you want to be in this genre of the buisiness, or even if you just simply like to keep up with what is coming out in the genre, you NEED this magazine.
Hatrack River - A great place to start for Sci-Fi lovers. This is Orson Scott Card’s official site, author of Ender’s Game the book, and script for the upcoming movie as well. He also hosts a writing workshop, which you can sign up for here. He’s the PREMIERE author in his genre today.
Terry Goodkind - The official website of one of my all time favorite authors. He wrote the “Sword of Truth” series, and the first book, Wizard’s First Rule, Is my favorite book, ever.
Marissa Meyer - I do like keeping up with young adult sci-fi and fantasy literature, and she’s my current favorite in the catagory. Her books Cinder and Scarlet top them all!
