Malak Hey there! I thought I'd make a group to share websites/ tools on certain topics for writers

For example, if you're writing about the middle ages and are struggling about finding the information you could write here. If you know a good website to research better about things like how life was during the french revolution, middles ages, pharaohs times etc you can share it as well!

Hope this will be useful, and good luck to everyone !

Andres Rodriguez (aroddamonster) | 583 comments Awesome! Thanks for the info Malak!

Getting stuck? Need another idea or simply want to see if any prompt could be used to get you out of your current mental block?

I've done a small search and found some sites that might help you narrow down some ideas. I'm sure you'll run into the same prompts over and over again while searching through these sites but maybe one of them will open up an idea for your or even offer you something else while perusing their site.

Liavali | 237 comments An acquaintance of mine published her book via patreon, so I am leaving here an interview of her, if anyone has thoughts of doing self publishing and is interested in reading about it.

Andres Rodriguez (aroddamonster) | 583 comments Wow. Neil Gaiman. I'd be interested in continuing to take additional courses with other GODS once they complete their courser class. Just keep me in mind.

Malak Awesome! I just had 3 busy weeks and had to take a break from the Coursera course but I'd love to try the Neig Gaiman course after I'm done. wow!

It's a paid course but I found it worthwhile. Having a peek inside the man's creative process was in itself inspiring and I found his advice quite liberating creatively.
