The internet is a wonderful place for writers. All the inspiration and information you could possibly need is only a click away, whether you’re writing fiction or non-fiction. Keeping focused and on track is important, and by knowing what you’re looking for and where to find it can save you hours of internet travel.
Credible sources are important to your work. For non-fiction articles, it is standard procedure to have two creditable sources, and it’s imperative to document these sources. When I’m working on an article, I often have two documents open. One for the article, and one for snippets, ideas and the websites from which I referenced the information. This way, whether the client for whom I’m working requires it or not, I have this documentation in case I need it.
The following websites (in no particular order) have been very useful for me in research, inspiration, tools, and work protection, and I hope they are valuable to you, as well.
