Inspiration from Author Emily Ann Putzke

Hi everyone! I’m Emily Ann Putzke, author of It Took a War, Ain’t We Got Fun, and my newest novel Resist which released this week. Today I’m going to share five of my favorite writing websites.

The Online Etymology Dictionary is a wonderful resource for historical writers. If you find your characters saying things you’re not sure are historically accurate, this site is your friend. It will tell you the year the word was first used.

Helping Writers Become Authors is a great website chocked full of advice. Peruse their site for advice on both the writing and publishing process. The author, K.M. Weiland, also posts daily writing quotes on her Facebook page that are either encouraging or downright funny.

I love the layout of She’s Novel. I especially liked her post on deep point of view, and overcoming writing doubts.

I’ve been a fan of Go Teen Writers for years. There’s timeless advice on all aspects of being a writer, contests, giveaways, and more.

And finally, Pinterest. Storyboards are super helpful and fun to make, whether they’re public or private. I love finding quotes and character pictures that resonate with my story. Check out some of my storyboards HERE.
