Writer’s Relief Links Roundup, April 2013

April Links RoundupOur staff members are always on the lookout for the latest tips, trends, and helpful tools for writers so we can better guide our clients and readers. And while we’ve always offered a variety of free articles and resources written and prepared by our own staff members, our Links Roundups provide readers with regular updates on our favorite online resources offered by other websites. We hope you enjoy the following five resources as much as we did!

Conciseness via Purdue Online Writing Lab – An outstanding resource for writers, the Purdue Online Writing Lab (OWL) always provides invaluable information about grammar rules and usage. This article is about tightening your prose, eliminating unnecessary phrases, and common mistakes to avoid.

How To Record, Produce, And Distribute Audiobooks With J. Daniel Sawyer via The Creative Penn – In the literary world, it’s not all about paper and e-books. With target audiences including diehard multitaskers, long-distance commuters, and the visually impaired, audiobooks are a fantastic branch of the literary industry to explore.

How To Write From Multiple Points of View When You Are Really Writing from One via The Word Process – A point of view for a book or story is a crucial stance a writer needs to make and maintain through a piece. But with a little creativity, a loophole may surely be found.

7 Words That Came About From People Getting Them Wrong via The Week – Every year, buzz circulates about the latest words to be added to The Oxford English Dictionary.

RIP Crawley And Darmody: How And Why You Should Kill Your Best People via Co.Create – While this article revolves around TV characters, it offers some great advice on when and why killing off main characters can be beneficial to your story. (Spoiler alert if you’re behind on Downton Abbey or Boardwalk Empire!)
