Inkygirl Golden Cupcake Award: Writer's Knowledge Base

Congrats to Writer's Knowledge Base, who wins an Inkygirl Golden CupCake Award! Created by mystery author and writing advice curator Elizabeth Spann Craig (@elizabethcraig on Twitter) this search engine is specifically geared toward writers.

It's a pretty amazing resource. Are you feeling dejected about a recent rejection? Entering "rejection" in the search field will turn up over 1400 posts on the topic! If you haven't already, I encourage you to try it out yourself.



Established in July/2010, the  Inkygirl Golden Cupcake Award is given to blogs  or sites I find particularly inspirational to writers, especially those that may not already be well-known. Criteria is unapologetically subjective.

If you win the award, you do NOT have to display or acknowledge the award (but feel free, if so inclined). Just bask in the ephemeral, golden glory of online blog stardom and then move on, continuing to be an inspiration to the writing community. And THANK YOU for doing what you do.

Here is a list of recent winners of the Inkygirl Golden Cupcake Award.

Wow! This is amazing, Debbie! Thanks so, so much for the Inkygirl Golden Cupcake Award. I'm tickled pink, and it means a lot coming from you--especially considering all you do to create resources and collect information for writers and illustrators. Thank you!

I'm going to share half my cupcake with computer genius extraordinaire Mike Fleming. His program automatically feeds my tweets into the knowledge base and makes them searchable. Thanks so much from both of us!
