Awesome Websites for Writers
Finding the best websites for writers is virtually impossible because best differs for all of us. However, the point of this blog is to pass along the resources that I use as a writer and to discover new ones. Below are some of my favorite websites for writers with a quick description of each. Please leave me a comment if you can think of a good site to add to the list. You can also check out my previous post Websites for Writers from May for more great resources.
