August 2013 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 staff-written articles, our Links Roundup posts provide readers with regular updates on our favorite online resources offered by other websites. We hope you enjoy the following four resources as much as we did!

Watch for Visually Distracting Phrases via DailyWritingTips – Writing is a creative and subjective practice. While writers have every right to be as convoluted or expressive as they want in their work, it’s best not to annoy or confuse readers too much. Mark Nichol discusses tips you can follow in order to avoid distracting your readers.

‘Yo’ Said What? via NPR – Avoiding gender-specific language in your writing (either in your creative writing or casual or business correspondences) is generally the way to go. For instance, using more general nouns like police officer instead of policeman. But as Rebecca Hersher explains, pronouns have been a little trickier to navigate. In this NPR piece, she discusses the recent evolution of pronouns among Baltimoreans.

Why You Should Join a Critique Group via Men With Pens – Writing can be a solitary experience. You sit at your desk, get in the zone, and nothing else matters except the words you are writing. Before you submit your work to journals, agents, or your Web following, it might benefit you to show your work to a much more selective group. Kari of Men With Pens discusses the practicality of joining a critique group.

7 Ways You’re Sabotaging Your Book Sales Without Even Realizing It via Bestseller Labs – Most authors want to see their book succeed. Whether that means high sales rates and landing on bestseller lists or garnering humble but critically acclaimed recognition, writers need to be proactive in making and meeting those goals. Jonathan Gunson describes how authors may be sabotaging their books’ success and how you can avoid such pitfalls.
