Came across this handy revision checklist – The oh-so-fun revision checklist for writing. Handy if you’re at the same stage as me, which is wrestling a draft into some semblance of shape. And along the same lines – 6 Steps for Your Final Edit, which has some great practical advice on things to look out for.
And speaking of that last link, I’d like to give a shout out to Girls with Pens for their blog I just came across this week. Lots of great articles for the emerging writer. Thanks!
For the linguistic geeks out there, or if you’re wanting to add a little dialect to your story, I came across North American English Dialects, Based on Pronunciation Patterns website this week. Combine it with this book – The Cambridge Encyclopedia of the English Language – and you’ll be sittin’ pretty.
