Writers' Resources on the Internet
by Nicole Boyd

What is one of the worst things that could happen to an aspiring writer, besides writer's block? It's having the perfect idea for a poem or prose piece (you know the one, it would make even the staunchest of English teachers weep from sheer beauty.); having that perfect thought, all alive in Technicolor within your mind…

…and not having the slightest idea how to put it into words.

Do not be afraid to experiment with new ideas and structures! Expand your window of knowledge as wide as you can...

Whether it is the actual mechanics of grammar or a matter of picking out the 'right' word to construct the perfect sentence; coming up against this little stumbling block is something all writers experience from time to time. It is my firm belief that no writer is flawless, however, there are handfuls that seem to write as if it comes as naturally as breathing. Aside from those that have been gifted at birth with an internal metronome, most of the truly excellent writers needed a lot of practice in the beginning. That there, is the key; practice. Do not be afraid to experiment with new ideas and structures! Expand your window of knowledge as wide as you can, and I believe that you'll see your writing skills just naturally following suit.

Here are three web sites I found that a writer of any skill status, the opportunity to broaden their knowledge horizon:

Creative Writing For Teens

This site is absolutely filled with useful, helpful information for the aspiring teen writer. There are humorous and informative articles, and over 20 different subject categories to choose from, such as, Creative Ideas, Dictionaries Etc, and Editing. The games and exercises are fun and educational. All in all, a great resource for writing help.

Magnetic Poetry

Welcome to your own personal palette of virtual word magnets, just waiting to be rearranged into works of art. (or not) Either way, when writer's block or some other form of frustration are hindering your creative process, this site is an absolute must. Have fun putting together the silliest of poems or sentences! It breaks down the strict walls of your block, and helps you relax again - prepping you for the mind-set to write the perfect piece.

Glossary of Poetic Terms from Bob's Byway

The title says it all…this site has the definition of almost every poetry term you can think of, examples of how they're used, and tons of cross-references. Almost daunting in size, but invaluable to someone who needs help with writing mechanics. Extremely informative!
