[mod post] Writing and Art Resources (updated for 2015)

Links, links and more links! This is your omgspnbigbang post for resources and helpful tips for writing, betaing, LJ how-tos, and art, updated from 2015.

We’ve taken our list from last year, incorporated recommendations of your fellow omgspnbigbangers, and added a few more links we found along the way.

This list is open for your updates, comments, thoughts, and ideas. If you come across anything on here that is not up-to-date or is no longer active, drop a comment or PM the mod.

There are many more awesome resources out there that you know about that would be awesome to share with all our members: sites with tips on writing, beta communities, art how-tos, resources for art betas, posts on how to be a GOOD beta, tips and tricks for proofreading and copyediting, fact-checking sites, funny and inspirational blogs, LJ how tos, FAQs and Q&A about all kinds of topics that come up in the writing and editing process, the list goes on and on.

Here’s how this works. Have a link you want to add? Leave a comment with the link and a brief note about its topic.

The mods will attempt to periodically update this list and move your suggestions and recommendations to the main post to make them easier to find.

Now without further ado, here’s the list…
