Resources

Hey, Reader!

In case you were looking for more information, here are some resources I’ve used in past blog posts. Generally, they’re also good sources to refer to when writing in addition to this blog.

See below for some quality resources.

Purdue University

Purdue Owl is a source I have used for years now. I find this site important because it provides instructional material for those looking to learn new writing styles or perfect what they already know. Purdue seeks to help writers no matter what their skill level, which is a goal for my own blog, as well. Purdue also keeps up to date and features spotlight resources regularly, which is useful because the English language is always growing and being refined. Having people speak on different topics in writing helps others to learn from one another.

Literary Devices and Literary Terms – The Complete List

“Literary Devices refers to the typical structures used by writers in their works to convey his or her messages in a simple manner to the readers.When employed properly, the different literary devices help readers to appreciate, interpret and analyze a literary work. Below is a list of literary devices with detailed definition and examples.” Literary Devices and Terms is also a great resource because it is a one stop shop for everything you need to know about the specifics of certain writing styles and genres. Their A-Z glossary contains terms and devices I’ve never heard of before, and I look forward to growing as a writer using this source. My hope is that others will find this site to be useful, as well.

JaneFriedman.com

A third good source to have is Jane Friedman’s writing blog. Her blog is geared towards helping authors and writers make smarter business decisions. Her blog includes, but is not limited to, offering classes to new and continuing writers, marketing tips, and a complete guide to publishing. Since my blog focuses a bit on each of these things and includes interviews with writers who have been through the publishing process, Jane’s blog is a great resource and guide for my own.
