[Linkage] W is for Writing Craft

Note: My A-Z theme is linkage. Every day (at 7:00 a.m. EST), I'm going to list three helpful industry links per letter, and then I'll ask for suggestions in the comments—that way, we can pool our resources! :)
 
W is for Writing Craft:

Honing your craft? Which sites do you love?

I'll have to check out the verb list.

Donna K. Weaver said...

I'll have to check out the verb list book, too. LOVE the Emotion Thesaurus and love their blog. Such an awesome resource.

Melissa said...

I don't know how you managed to narrow it down to only three. There are some great resources out there. ;)

Here's one on weasel words:

I couldn't live without Thesaurus.com and Grammarbook.com.

And this writing glossary is helpful: http://www.fromthewriteangle.com/p/writing-glossary.html

I'm all about the Cambridge Online dictionary.

ilima said...

I use the Bookshelf Muse all the time.

prerna pickett said...

those are so helpful!

Sheena-kay Graham said...

Never can learn too much.

C. Lee McKenzie said...

I like Chicago, too. It seem to make the most sense in both fiction and non-fiction.

Nancy Thompson said...

I sure would love my own copy of the CMoS since I have to rely on it as an editor, but $65! Whoa! I'm too broke for that. I did download the verb sheet. THANKS!! It'll come in handy. And I refer to the Bookshelf Muse all the time. Great list of links, Carrie!!

I've been using the Chicago website often this semester, since my professor for two of my Information Science classes prefers their citation style. http://phrontistery.info/ also has a lot of interesting words for a language/linguistics nerd. My X post for tomorrow actually uses a word I found there.

It's good stuff! :)

Carrie Butler said...

Aren't they fantastic? :D

Becca Puglisi said...

Wow, that verb list is awesome! Thanks so much for including The Bookshelf Muse on your list, Carrie. I needed that pick-me-up at the end of this very long day ;).

Connie B. Dowell said...

The Bookshelf Muse is a great one!

Carrie Butler said...

It was pretty difficult... :) Thank you for sharing, Melissa!

Carrie Butler said...

Oo, that's a good one, Talli! :)

Carrie Butler said...

Gotta love that site! :)

Carrie Butler said...

Thanks for stopping by, Prerna! :)

Jocelyn Rish said...

I usually consult the Chicago Manual or Grammar Girl for my grammar type issues. I had not heard of the other two links, but I'll definitely be bookmarking them. Thanks!!

Carrie Butler said...

Too true! :)

Carrie Butler said...

It's my favorite. I wish we could've used it in school. <3

Carrie Butler said...

Wouldn't that be nice? If I had a copy of CMoS, I'd put it on a pedestal with some kind of dramatic lighting. ;)

Thanks, Nancy!

Carrie Butler said...

That must be so nice! I always had to use APA and MLA in college, and I hated it. LOL

Thank you for the link! :)

Carrie Butler said...

You're very welcome, Becca! You know I love me some Bookshelf Muse. :D

Carrie Butler said...

Isn't it? :D

Carrie Butler said...

You're going to love them, Jocelyn! :) And no problem!

Mark Means said...

Great links...especially the style guide. I can see me visiting there quite often.

Thanks Carrie! :)
