Best New Web Site for Writers!

Hi everyone!

Sorry I have been missing in action. Took a trip and then returned to revisions, revisions, revisions, and am just now getting back on track!

Me in Paris. Good excuse, huh?


I had planned on writing a completely different post this morning, but then I realized I had important information to share with you all, information that could make your life oh-so-much-easier!


I have been a huge fan of the talent behind this website – Angela Ackerman and Becca Puglisi – and a devoted follower of their wonderful blog Writers Helping Writers.

I’ve bought their wonderful Thesauruses (SO HELPFUL!) and pored over their advice, all of which has helped me more than I can truly articulate.

Now they’ve teamed up with Lee Powell to create an online reference library for writers. For a small subscription fee (annual or monthly) you have access to tremendous resources that continue to be updated regularly:

  • 11 (!) different kinds of thesauruses from emotion to symbolism to weather for heaven’s sake.  You want to know how a character might react under stress? It’s here! How would you describe frost to your reader, stagnation, coming of age, the list is endless!
  • An idea generator to get those creative juices flowing and help you look at your idea in a different way
  • tons of templates and worksheets that you can either print off or work with online and save right on the site.

The tagline for One Stop for Writers is “Elevate Your Storytelling” and it is certainly that, although I would add “Dig yourself out of that hole you’ve dug your characters and plot into”.

Honestly, I have only been working with this site for the past few days and I wonder how I survived without it. It is easy to use and best of all, the content will keep expanding!

God bless Angela, Becca, and Lee!

Keep Writing!
