Nevertheless, regardless of the number of bestsellers under your belt, the New Forge is always at your disposal to make you slightly better at creative writing tomorrow than what you are today. Here are a few writing tools to help you:
Creative Writing Mega-forums
- Poets and Writers is an absolutely massive resource for established and soon-to-be established writers. From community forums, writing prompts, contents to guides on how to get published to actual connections to publishers themselves, Poets and Writers is an absolute battleship on the rough seas of authorhood.
- Writer’s Digest is another colossal resource (though sadly much rougher on the eyes) that focuses on community, contests, critiques and getting your Good Works published and into the mainstream. Writers’ beware: you will fall down the rabbit’s hole.
- Reddit is a top-5 internet destination for the entire planet Earth. Inside its multi-cosm of cultures is who-knows-how-many writing forums, each dedicated to their own broad or razor-thin focus. Non-redditor beware: there is quite the sub-culture herein, and you’ll need to feel out the etiquette one faux-pas at a time.
