Named One of Writer’s Digest’s 101 Best Websites for Writers!

Writer's Digest 101 Best Websites for Writers BadgeI had a very cool surprise this week. As I was flipping through the latest issue of Writer’s Digest and their yearly round-up of their 101 Best Websites for Writers, I discovered that Helping Writers Become Authors was listed in their “Writing Advice Category.” This is such a tremendous honor, and I’m still a little floored. Thank you to all of you emailed Writer’s Digest to nominate the site. I appreciate it so much!

  1. Well deserved! I have fallen off reading every blog and podcast that I used to. There just isn’t the time. BUT, the one that I never miss is yours. Every one is like a steak dinner and I come away full. Thanks for all you do!

  2. Congratulations! This website has helped me a lot. 🙂

  3. A well-deserved honor! Congratulations!

    To quote Vikrant Parsai:

    “Life allows us to ask for what we want, but usually gives us what we deserve.”

  6. Congratulations!!! A quite deserved honor! 😉 And seriously, thanks so much for all your help and advice. At the moment, I’ve been super appreciating your character arc posts…and just this morning (per your recent post) I was beginning to have it out with my current “elephant”. 🙂

  7. Congratulations!

    Thank you all so much!

  10. This place definitely deserves it. It’s the best writing advice blog I’ve seen and the best I’ve been fortunate enough to participate in.

  11. I was looking over it and saw that the “elephant post” was actually from one of your lovely guest writers. 🙂 But either way, you run a fantastically fabulous and hospitable site. Thanks so much! 🙂

  12. Well deserved. I like learning from you posts. Thanks and congratulations.

  13. Congrats! It’s well deserved without a doubt!

    I find your website very helpful. Followed your post on developing your character arc.
    Congratulations on your selection.

  15. Out of the countless websites on writing yours is one of the few that I follow religiously.

  16. Fantastic stuff! You deserve it with all the hard work you do, and your efforts should always be rewarded. Congrats to you!

  17. Congratulations! I really appreciate your posts, and they always make me think. 🙂

    I was out of town and missed this post. Seeing it now, let me say: richly deserved. So many sites do little more than serve the interests of the blogger. With you, nothing could be further from the truth. Congrats!

  19. As well you should be. Congratulations. I have you listed as the best of the best. A well deserved award.

  20. Kay Anderson says

    Congrats for your website’s nomination! You always give good advice! 🙂

  21. Congratulations. You definitely deserve it.
