Fun Finds for Reading & Writing Enthusiasts

image for blog

Multiple times throughout the day (more than I’d like to admit), I like to jump on social media and see what other people are looking at. I go to Twitter to find out what the people I follow are posting about. Usually I end up with about 464735 tabs open if I happen to be a t a desktop so I can look at all the cool links they’ve posted. Then, I go to Facebook and look at their creepily accurate page suggestions. Nevertheless, I always find something exciting or interesting to look at. Below, you’ll find a compilation of informative, insightful, or just plain fun info that I found perusing the internet.

  • Parade recently posted the “Most Popular Books in Each of the 50 States” Check it out to see which book your state loves the most
  • I happened upon Book Riot thanks to Facebook suggesting I “like” them. While I’m still not sure how I feel about the Facebook gods knowing my taste so well, it did turn out to be a great find. They post everything book related, and its awesome.
  • I’m pretty sure I’m the last to find out about her, but Grammar Girl is fantastic for all-things-grammar tips and tricks.
  • Are you stuck on that character you are trying to develop? Or maybe you’re a teacher and need to push your students in the direction of character flaws. Well, Writers Write has 123 ideas for you to choose from.
  • Looking for photos for your site or blog but want to stay away from the evil pit of doom known as copyright infringement? BookWorks provides a list of great resources for stock photos.
  • Are you interested in freelance writing? If so, definitely check out the Renegade Writer. This blog belongs to Linda Formichelli. She’s a well established freelancer who makes a full-time income from her writing. Oh, and she has a couple of freebies to get you on your way.
  • And while we’re on the freelance writing kick, another blog to check out is Making a Living Writing by Carol Tice. She’s also full-time freelancer, and she too, offers some great freebies to get you started!
  • Just for fun, go to BuzzFeed’s quiz to find out which Jane Austen heroine you are. Seriously. Do it.
