This is not an article with tips for aspiring writers. As an aspiring writer myself, this is an article used as a resource for aspiring writers. I am here to learn with you. If I was a published author trust me, I would give you all the tips I knew because the world is big enough for all of us.
Please share any resources that you have because this can help other aspiring writers too. Below are my resources I use that helps me with my stories. Also feel free to share your resources here. I just stated that this article is for resources simply because I do not claim to be an expert when it comes to getting published.
Writers digest is like the google of the aspiring writing world to me. I highly reccomend subscribing to Writer's Digest emails. There are tips from bestselling authors on just about everything.
Bridget McNulty, a published author in the USA in South Africa from Now Novel provides great tips for aspiring writers. I have gotten emails with articles on how to plot, how to develop characters, how to plot a novel, how to plot a short story, etc from her group.
I have not read Stephen King's On Writing, but I have read excerpts on his tips for writing in articles. I definitely plan on checking this book out at the library but in the meantime I have a few quotes from the book:
"Writing is a lonely job. Having someone who believes in you makes a lot of difference."
"Description begins in the writer’s imagination, but should finish in the reader’s."
"The most important things to remember about back story are that (a) everyone has a history and (b) most of it isn’t very interesting."
"By the time I was fourteen the nail in my wall would no longer support the weight of the rejection slips impaled upon it. I replaced the nail with a spike and went on writing."
"It starts with this: put your desk in the corner, and every time you sit down there to write, remind yourself why it isn’t in the middle of the room. Life isn’t a support system for art. It’s the other way around."
