Masterlist for new writers

I received some comments saying my post with tips for prospective writers and its accompanying masterlist were helpful for some people, so I decided to write a new post about what I’m doing after that. Here are some links that I found useful when I decided I wanted to try and write professionally. (Wow, that still sounds weird to me.)

  1. How to do your research:
    The British Newspaper Archive.
    -“Things Almost Every Author Needs to Research“.
    -“Fantasy Worldbuilding Questions” by SFWA.
    Research Resources for Writers by dailywritingtips.
    The Ultimate Novel Writing Resource Masterlist by The writers’ archive
  2. How to write your first draft:
    -“How to slay self-doubt and write that novel” by Lee Welch.
    -“Writers: Stop Doing This!” by KJ Charles.
    -“The Theory of Shitty First Drafts” by Wrex.
  3. How to edit:
    Self-editing tips Part I and Self-editing tips Part II by KJ Charles. And another post in her new blog you may find useful as well.
    -“Sensitivity Reads and You” by KJ Charles.
  4. How to publish:
    -“The Author’s Biggest Mistake” by KJ Charles.
    -“Writing Query Letters” by KJ Charles.
    -“Being Edited, or How to take Criticism” by KJ Charles.
    -“What a year of self-publishing taught me” by Talia Hibbert.
    -“Ten Point Author’s Guide on How to Survive in Publishing” by Jackie Ashenden.
  5. How to sell your book:
    -“Marketing unmasked: A ‘how to’ for the reluctant writer” by Lee Welch.
    -“eBook Piracy: What to do if someone steals your book” by Kindlepreneur.

There are more links I can’t share because they’re from patreon and won’t work unless you’re patrons of the author, but I promise I’ll do another masterlist post in the future with more points, and I’ll also share some of the books/eBooks I’ve read about writing.

And please share any good posts here so we can all read them as well!
