No Wasted Ink Writer’s Links


Welcome back to another day of writing links from No Wasted Ink.  This week I focused on general writing tips that I felt were useful for beginning and intermediate writers.  I especially love the article on setting up your scrivener project.  It is very similar to what I do myself at the start of a project.  I hope you enjoy them!

  1. Oh, there are many automated ways to gather links. Some of the bots will even post them for you on various social media. It allows people to keep their social media accounts active without additional work. However, if you rely on a machine to gather your data and don’t police it manually, things creep in that you might not want on your feed.

    Early on, I chose to do my Monday links based on what I read. I go over each article and winnow it. Some I pass by, others go into my personal files for reference and others, that meet certain criteria, go here to my Monday links. I feel that it gives my links page a better quality than those that go the machine route. It really is from my box to yours. 🙂

    1. You sure put in a lot of time with this, Wendy. Makes me even more grateful. And I’ve never considered using a bot ~ for anything! Like you, I’m hands on. I won’t post what I haven’t read. Guess we’re a dying breed 🙂

      1. Yeah, I’m a tad old-fashioned. Still use paper notebooks and pens, a planner to organize, ect. Not that I don’t appreciate our electronic age. I am the proud owner of a ThinkPad after all. 🙂 I just like to keep things more hands on. As for dying breed, I don’t know about that. I’m seeing many young people returning to paper and integrating into their organizing systems along side the digital.
