Thanks to everyone who entered the Readers are Smart Giveaway in celebration of YOU, my 300+ followers! The winner(s) are announced below…but first!
L’Aussie alerted me to a very cool resource for writers. Do you ever feel like there are so many awesome blog posts out there, and not enough time to read them? I DO ALL THE TIME. Do you ever gnash your teeth when you stumble across a writing issue, and remember reading a great post about it, but can’t find it again to save your soul? Yeah, me too.
Elizabeth Spann Craig and Mike Fleming joined forces to create a search engine for writers and dubbed it the Writer’s Knowledge Base. Sort of like Wikipedia for Writers, only it’s really Google for Writers … you just need to check it out …
Here’s an example:
I type Plotting and WKB comes back with:
Avoid 5 Plotting Mistakes (which is part of an 8 post series)
…and 669 more results.
When I try the same thing in Google, I get the definition of plotting in the dictionary, and 10 ways to tell if your cat is plotting to kill you. Intriguing, but not very helpful.
I think Writer’s Knowledge Base is pure genius! It’s my new best friend.
On to the winners!
Winner of the Book of Your Choice is … Shannon O’Donnell!
Winner of a 20 page crit from yours truly is … Pk Hrezo!
Meanwhile, the fun continues …
