Writing Resources: Part two

Social media, our daily pill. We wake up to it, we fall asleep to it. But how can it help in writing exactly?

Easy, the community. It’s easy to slip into isolation when writing, but with these few social media apps, and tips on how to use them, you’ll become a social writer in no time.

First on our list is Facebook: We all know the platform created by Mark Zuckerberg. How can the app you use to track down your estranged distant aunt’s cousin, be used in your writing? Well, you can join groups, ask for writing tips and tricks, exchange ideas and even offer snippets of your unfinished works to beta readers that might purchase your book when it’s released.

Next on our list is Twitter: Much like facebook the sense of community helps in driving you towards completing your next chapter. Talk about your book for a bit, see whose interested in helping you out, with it. Looking for a fresh set of eyes, there are multiple on twitter.

And my personal favorite, even though I’m not supposed to be picking favorites as an impartial figure of the law and blogger, but you need Wattpad as a writer, new or old. The community there is instant. They are friendly welcoming, and always ready to lend a helping hand with whatever genre you are writing. Fiction or non fiction, the community is ready to help.

And finally, Wikipedia: The home of valuable and detailed information. The community on Wikipedia isn’t as active as all other sites, but information there is easily corrected and validated and I use it as a romantic suspense author for dates of events, like a peek into history without pulling out a history book.
