My writing friends, where do you turn for inspiration?  For interesting articles on the craft of writing?  For answers to all those strange questions that pop into your mind… like what is a beta reader and how many words are on a Kindle page?  I have the perfect one stop shop for you…Check out the Writer’s Knowledge Base, a search engine specifically designed with writers in mind.  Here’s a description from the About page:  “The Writer’s Knowledge Base (WKB) is a searchable collection of articles that are highly relevant to writers. The articles are diverse and cover such topics as the craft of writing, getting published, promotion, etc.”  The brain child of mystery writer Elizabeth S Craig and Mike Fleming, the WKB is a treasure trove of information, a compendium of blogs and articles on the craft of writing.  Check it out, but try not to get lost in the wealth of material available there.

Craig, another mystery writer, and the person responsible for the Writer’s Knowledge Base that I wrote about last week. […]
