IWSG and A New Library in Town: One Stop For Writers

Click here to find out more and to see a list of other IWSG blogs.
Purpose: To share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer assistance and guidance. It’s a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds!

Not only is it posting day for Insecure Writers Support Group (IWSG), it's launch day for a new writing aid called One Stop for Writers by the awesome ladies who brought us the Emotion Thesaurus (and others). I've been looking forward for, like, forever!

So, instead of being insecure, I'm doing a happy dance!

If there's one thing all writers agree on, it's that writing is TOUGH. The road to publication twists and dips as we learn the craft, hone our abilities, create stories we're passionate about, fight discouragement, educate ourselves about the industry...and then start the process all over again as we realize there's room to improve. But you know what? If you are like me, you wouldn't have it any other way.

Yet, sometimes it's nice to get a helping hand.

Finding a good writing book, a helpful blog, a mentor or critique partner to share the journey with...these things are gems along the writing path. And guess what? Maybe there's another resource waiting just up the road called One Stop For Writers. One Stop For Writers is not writing software, but rather a powerful online library that contains tools, unique description collections, helpful tutorials and much more, brought to you by Angela Ackerman & Becca Puglisi, the authors of The Emotion Thesaurus and Lee Powell, the creator of Scrivener for Windows. Could One Stop For Writers be the writing partner you've been searching for?

Visit Writers Helping Writers this week and see, where Angela, Lee and Becca are celebrating their venture with prizes and some pay-it-forward fun.

  11. Cool. I love it when people pool resources and make them easy to access. Because let's face it, rounding up all that info separately? PAIN. LOTS OF PAIN.

    1. I think initially it's free. Maybe for people to try out. Then I believe there's a membership fee, kind of like they do with rafflecopter. But specifics should be on the webpage.
