Don't want to wade through books to start your NaNoRevMo? Want a quick article to fix a character problem, of help with a plot problem? Here is a list of links from authors and others in the publishing business who can offer editing help for your NaNoWriMo novel.
One of the best: Kathy Temean's Writing and Illustrating. As a former regional advisor of the New Jersey Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators, she has connections to the great and the prolific in the book world. You will find articles on almost any aspect of the writing process. Bookmark this goldmine, use it, learn from it.
Friend, writing colleague and published author Yvonne Ventresca has a blog blog that offers advice to both teen and adults writers. There are numerous articles to peruse and offer advice on whatever writing issue plagues you. Take a gander and bookmark this site too.
Voted in the top 100 sites for writers several times is fellow author Rachelle Burk's website. She has so many other links and resources for writers that if you don't look through it, you're going to miss something you need. Remember, we're focusing on editing and perfecting that story, not looking for agents and editors and how to get published at this point- don't get distracted.
Need more? Check out these sites:
The Write Life
The Positive Writer
I could put so many more links, but you don't need that many, and shouldn't waste your time. Later, after the book is edited and having a 'rest' (the time between a finished edit and the next edit), scoot around Google and look some more. Don't overwhelm yourself.
Next Monday, a checklist of how to find flaws in your manuscript. Till then, keep writing!
