Does anybody have any websites in which you can just post entire stories for people to read for fun. Like an e-book site or something. Yes I know I'm being kinda vague, but I don't know how to describe it. :-\
I just had an idea so amazing that my mind would explode if I even began to know what I was talking about....

Hello everyone,

We have started a blog and there is a section called 'So you want to work in the media' I have posted some lengthy advice about how to get started in commercial writing work and have had some excellent feedback from writers as to how useful they have found it. I hope it may be of use to some of you and will welcome further feedback or questions. If you click on www.passionatemedia.co.uk and the 'read our blog' icon it should come up.

Thanks and best wishes

Linda

   I know it's been a while since this dusty old topic was raised but a friend of mine has sent me the following sites that I've checked out and thought some of you might be interested in;   www.writingfix.com, http://journalsparks.com, www.writeboard.com, www.creativeportal.org (for U.K. writers) and www.spoiledink.com.  I apologize for any repeat info I may be sending.  :)

   Have a truly wonderful and Blessed day, everyone!  :)

i would like to recommend http://www.beawriter.us

Almost every tip and activity is available for free right off of the website.  and if you want you can purchase the e-book or pre-order the book.  It's mostly younger writers, but there's still some really good stuff.

Hi, i'd like to recommend a few web sites that i've found very helpful - www.charlottedillon.com/synopsis.html , don't be put off if you're not a 'romance' fiction writer, it is extremely helpful. www.ideas4writers.co.uk - if you're stuck for inspiration, esp. good for short story ideas. And www.youwriteon.com, a brilliant website i stumbled over last year, you review and rate other writers work, after you're gained a few credits you can submit your own work for constructive comments by other members. The highest rated receive a free critique by professionals and a possible chance of publication as agents and publishers apparently regularly view the site.

I'm a fan of Randy Ingermanson's Advanced Fiction Writing:  http://www.AdvancedFictionWriting.com

Randy's been writing for 18 years and has been an award-winning author for the last 12. He's also very funny, which you would soon see if you subscribed to his free monthly newsletter.  It's full of how-to articles on the various aspects of fiction writing, (including articles from and interviews with other writers).  A recent series of articles in his newsletter was about time management which I found very useful, uncomplicated.

He's producing a series of courses for writers, which are available on CD, downloadable, or available to read online.  I have his Fiction Writing 101 and it's in my top three fiction writing courses and not just because I got it for $24 because it was his 24th wedding anniversary and the deal closed after - 24 hours! It includes over 6 hours of audio listening.  He's just completed Fiction Writing 202 this week (November 2006) and I've already bought it at 50 per cent discount.  That includes over 10 hours listening.  Excerpts are available. 

He gives away a lot.  Excerpts of his books are available and his first, now out of print, is available free in exchange for recommending it to three friends.    He has developed a method of novel writing - The Snowflake Method - which is also very useful and again, uncomplicated. 

Next sumer (2007) he's teaching a one week writing workshop on a cruise to Alaska.  Alas Alaska is out for me but there are cabins still available. Non-writing family and friends are welcome aboard too.

www.revivalscanterbury.co.uk

It's a clothes shop in Canterbury.  I was in there on Saturday.  What's it got to do with writing?  Well, it's a retro clothes shop and it certainly took me down memory lane! Aside from the fact that we bought a Harris Tweed jacket for my husband for next to nothing and a pair of (brand new, though retro) knee length boots with square toes for me at one third of the price they're going for in the shops, I realised what a great research resource it was for writers.  How do I clothe my 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s etc character?  Nip down to my local retro clothes shop to find out! And if you're in Canterbury, visit Revivals and Debbie Barwick will give you a 5% student discount even if you're 55 and a student not of Kent Uni, but of the Writers' Bureau! And no she didn't give me a discount for writing this.  Promise! :)

I've just started reading Labyrinth by Kate Mosse and I'm really enjoying it so far.
On the cover is a website address:

http://www.mosselabyrinth.co.uk

This isn't just a publicity page for the book.  This site has been running since 2000 and Mosse and her husband have used it to chronicle the entire process of writing Labyrinth and there is also a great advice section for new writers with 52 tips (one for each week of a year).

This site is essentially a blog, but it's been going since before most people even knew what a blog was.  Way ahead of its time.

It's inspiring, it's informative, but most importantly it's not patronizing.

Hi Leah

I'll add your site to my own 'writers portal'.  And light a candle for you.
