Handy Sites for Writers
Here are the sites I listed in my article for the WBWWS newsletter.
These are just a few of the websites I regularly use. Many of my research sites are geared toward specific stories, so I haven't included them.
Knowing the right way to search is as important as using a good search engine. I mostly succeed through trial and error, though I notice I'm better at research than my husband or any of my children. Perhaps it's that edge of tenacity (stubbornness) that is pervasive in my personality. Maybe after all the research I've done, I am better by habit. I haven't figured it out, nor have I any useful tips for folks who are bad at it. But I'll think about it.
