Thursday Thirteen #16



Thirteen Websites that I find interesting and useful!

The first 4 are great writer's references:

1. Word Reference

2. Dictionary

3. Wikipedia

4. Thesaurus

5. The Write Attitude. A great reference and inspirational website for all writers.

6. An Archive of History and Historical Resources . This is an amazing site! I haven’t even scratched the surface of it yet.

7. The Occult Library. Contains various articles on all sorts of occult subjects.

8. Names of Gods and Goddesses.

9. Cycle of Power ~ Animal Totems

10. Writerspace. They have wonderful chats and contests, as well as information on authors and books.

11. Ebay. This is the place to find just about anything and everything!

These two--because, really, how could I resist. :-)

12. Samhain Publishing

13. Ellora’s Cave Publishing

This a great resource list NJ!! I've saved it to favorite posts so I can access those links for research! Ironically I first started buying erotica at EC as research for an exhibition I've been working on for the past few years.

Nice resource list, NJ! I use onelook.com all the time, it links to multiple dictionaries. I should make it my home page...

N.J.Walters said...

It's amazing what you can find online, Rhian. I've gotten some great links from other authors as well and just by poking around.

I'll check that one out, Charli. Thanks!

I LOVE the Write Attitude. Great inspiration stories

Christine d'Abo said...

These are excellent resources. I love Wikipedia for all sorts of great reasons. EC is always good for "research" ideas. ;)

Tempest Knight said...

Wow... it's been some time since I've visited Writerspace. Maybe I should drop by again.

LA Day said...

Great list!

N.J.Walters said...

I agree, they are great, Kate!

LOL EC is always good for research and inspiration, Christine!

I find that there is always something interesting to see at Writerspace. They have great contests every month and wonderful chats too.

Thanks, Laura.

Lisa Andel said...

Dang, I use a lot of these already. But I'm copying down the ones I haven't heard of before, for sure.

Cat Marsters & Kate Johnson said...

Good list, NJ, I hadn't thought of it but I use a lot of those too!

Gabriella Hewitt said...

Nice list. I'm a wikipedia fan. Does that count as one website or many?

Ember Case said...

I love The Write Attitude! A few minutes there get me in the mood (to write) every time.

Ann Aguirre said...

Excellent list. :)

Lesley said...

I adore wikipedia! It rocks my world! You can find absolutely anything on it!

N.J.Walters said...

Lisa and Kate, I think a lot of us, as writers, use many of these resources. But I'm always coming across new ones that other author's recommend.

Wikipedia is a fun site, Gabriella. It's one and it's many. *g*

It is a great site, Ember.

Thanks, Ann.

You can find everything and the kitchen sink there, Lesley. :-)

Elle Fredrix said...

I keep telling myself that I need to get a second computer with no intenet on it. I'd get way more writing done. Then I remember how much I use some of these sites while writing.

Great list!

Nicole Austin said...

Great list, NJ! I'm bookmarking several of the resources. Thanks for posting them.

Nancy Lindquist-Liedel said...

I am totaly saving this!!!

Carolan Ivey said...

[busily bookmarking]

Thanks, NJ!

Joely Sue Burkhart said...

I saved several of these links in my favorites. Thanks so much!

Robin L. Rotham said...

I use a lot of these, too. Another I love is Urban Dictionary. Living in rural Nebraska, I often need to look up some of today's urban vernacular, and Urban Dictionary's got it all. :D

Shelley Munro said...

A great list of resources, NJ. I use Wikipedia quite a bit but google is my friend :)

N.J.Walters said...

Elle, my computer actually isn't online. Only my hubby's is hooked up to the internet. I wouldn't get any writing done otherwise. :-)

Nic, Nancy, Carolan, and Joely, you're very welcome. I find a lot of links from other authors as well.

I'll have to check out the urban dictionary, Robin.

You're right about Google, Shelley!

Melany said...

great list. I think I shall bookmark this.
