Follow Friday – October 25, 2013 – Writing Ideas

A few weeks ago we introduced new Writing Websites. One of which was The Bookshelf Muse. This website has been changed to Writers Helping Writers. Check out their Talents and Skills Theaurus.

Here are a couple other writing sites that we found useful. Please let us know which sites you enjoy.

The DuPage Writer’s Group has an interesting post on Inventing Your Own Cliches.

Chicago Literary Map’s blog. This was something new I found this week that encourages Chicago residents to write about places they visit in the city. Do you have anything like this where you live?

And, the OneMinuteWriter has some great writing prompts on its site. Take a peek!

Obituary of Frank Winkler, 1948 Obituaries are a rich source of information on our family members. They often tell us who the surviving members of the family are, where an individual is buried, military service, volunteer or career information, and other personal details.
