The problem with taking a step away from your computer or your notebook to do anything – eat, talk to someone, clean your house (heaven forbid) – is that every moment you spend doing those things, you’re not writing. I know from experience that slogging through Amazon or combing your nearest bookstore shelves for the latest and greatest writing resource is a tempting excuse to make. Yes, even while you’re looking for books on how to become a better writer, you’re not writing.
This post is not a guilt trip, I promise.
To make all of our lives easier, here at DIYMFA we’ve decided to join forces with the writing community in a weekend-long Blog Party. The goal? To create the best, most definitive and most helpful list of writing resources ever!
Here’s the plan:
Tomorrow (Tuesday) we will break the ice with our (Gabriela & Becca’s) lists of personal favorites. First is Top 10 Website Picks. On Wednesday, we will post Top 10 Twitter Feed Picks, and on Thursday we’ll conclude with Top 10 Book Picks. Friday, of course, will kick-start our party! Be sure to mark your calendars, because we need YOUR help to come up with the most definitive Best. Resource. List. Ever!
So join the party, and help make the world a better place for time-wasting writers. At least with this list, you’ll be spending your extra time wisely. Everyone needs a break once in a while, don’t they?
