Reedsy Blog and Prompts

When it comes to creative writing tips and resources, Reedsy has been a recent obsession for me. Reedys offers a variety of free (and some paid) resources for creative writers. Below are my two favorite parts of the website.

Ready’s blog feature is my favorite tool from the website. The blog feature has many ‘how-to’ articles and tips that help writers that want to know how to make their writing more effective. These blog posts come with free templates and outlines that you can download and keep in your creative writing stash. One of the recent templates I’ve downloaded is the ultimate world-building template which allows you to build you story’s history, setting, and characteristics. This template is perfect for science fiction writers!

Another favorite of mine from the Reedsy website are its writing prompts. It gives various writing prompts in case you need a boost of inspiration for your next story or if you just want a prompt to free write to. If you do decide to write a story based on their prompts, you can send in the story for free for a chance to win a cash prize!

While Reedsy has many other resources that I love, like a book editor, character name generator, and more, I’ll leave the exploring to you. Next time you’re searching the web, click the link below and check out the free resources they have for writers.
