I’m a little late posting this, but Writer’s Digest recently published their 2009 list of 101 Best Websites for Writers.
Many of the sites WD recommends are geared toward creative writers, rather than business writers. Nonetheless, the sections on Jobs and Markets and General Resources contain valuable information for anyone involved in independent writing and editing.
One of my favorite sites is not included in WD’s list — Daphne Gray-Grant’s Publication Coach. Daphne’s tips on writing well and writing quickly are highly relevant to business writers, and you can sign up to receive them in a weekly email newsletter.
Scott’s Vocab is another good destination not included in the list. It’s a blog by Ben Schott, author of Schott’s Original Miscellany, exploring odd and novel uses of vocabulary in the news. For feature story writers in particular, it can be fun to pick up one of the terms Schott discovers and use it in just the right instance in a story.
