Step 4-USE ONLINE EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES
I need to review the basics, practice the intermediate things I’ve learned, and start learning something new to improve my writing and marketability. Easy-peasy, right?
Websites and blogs for writers in every genre abound. Many have great archives. I’m dabbling.
I also belong to a couple of organizations that offer ongoing free education and advice online. Just spending a few minutes on one of these sites gets my creative brain in the right lane.
Here are a few for you to sample:
Writer’s Digest offers hundreds of articles. Shucks! Maybe thousands of them.
Evelyn Christensen offers gobs of information and education for writing nonfiction for children.
The Write2Ignite! blog posts practical and informative articles specifically for those who write for children. They also have a great Conference in SC in March.
Emma Walton Hamilton’s page of her favorite resources is great.
Tara Lazar’s blog is jam-packed with informative stuff. Love it.
Julie Hedlund offers tons of informative blog posts plus her for-hire services.
One more – right here under my RESOURSES tab.
And there are hundreds of thousands more online.
Browse them, decide whether or not each one will be helpful for you. If so, dig in. The banquet is free. Absolutely free.
