September is here, which means that thousands of savvy novelists are beginning to plan their Nanowrimo 2017 novels. I want to make things easier for them – and I need YOUR help to do it!
The Ultimate Resource List for Fantasy & Science Fiction Writers
Way back in 2014 (doesn’t that feel like a lifetime ago now?) I compiled three massive resource lists for writers:
- The Ultimate List of 42 Worldbuilding Resources
- The Ultimate Character Resource List
- The Ultimate Plot Creation Resource List
I then compiled all three lists into a massive PDF and made it a freebie for my newsletter subscribers.
This blog has shifted to focus more on the mental aspects of writing, but craft is still incredibly important–and knowing where to start can take a massive weight off your mind. So I’m bringing the Ultimate Resource List for Fantasy & Science Fiction Writers back! And this time it’s going to be even better. I’ll be adding a Community Building Resource List with 20+ resources.
Oh, and I’ll be releasing all five lists in a bundled ebook on October 5th. Three weeks isn’t the ideal amount of time for planning a novel, but it’s better than one–and I want to spend the extra time making sure this is the best list of writing resources ever compiled.
The book will be available to anyone who subscribes to the BLOG UPDATES section of my newsletter. I may also make it available to non-subscribers for a brief period of time.
What you can do to help
Submit your favourite writing resources to me!
My original Ultimate Writing Resource List was published in October 2014. This means two things: some of the links are dead, and millions of new writing resources have been published. I want YOU to help me find the best current resources so I can update and expand my list.
What am I looking for? Any article, video, or course that focuses on worldbuilding, character development, or plotting. All resources must be freely available to the public. I don’t want to sign up for anything, and I’m sure most of you don’t either.
Other than that, anything is fair game! You are welcome to submit your own blog posts/other writing content. I will personally vet all submissions, but I’m willing to give even the most obscure writing exercises a chance.
Sound good to you? Send the name, link, and one sentence descriptions for all your favourite writing resources to diannalgunn@gmail . com. All information should be in the body of the email.
Submissions must be sent by September 25th to be considered for inclusion.
