I have been remiss in not mentioning my inspiration for these “Best Tweets” posts. That distinction belongs to Jane Friedman of There Are No Rules at Writer’s Digest, who compiles a weekly “Best Tweets for Writers” post. She was both helpful and generous in pointing me toward ways to automate some of this process. (Still working on that part.) If you’re a writer, she is a must-follow resource and inspiration. You can also follow Jane on Twitter. Many thanks, Jane!
Best Tweets for Trauma Survivors is a weekly Friday feature. My selections are entirely subjective, and I know it will never be possible to include every great resource tweeted. But I can try! I’ve personally read all tweeted links, and believe them to be of great value.
Disclaimer: I am in no way responsible for content found on any other website. Stay safe, and don’t follow links if you believe you might be triggered by them. Also, I will not be re-checking links from older Best Tweets posts, and if the site’s archived URL is different from the one I’ve provided here, you may need to do a search on their site.
Please add your candidates for Best Tweets For Trauma Survivors in the comments.
