I’m in the middle of reading a long book right now that I will probably be recommending in Free Publicity Fridays next week. But this week, I got nada for book reviews. So instead, I’m plugging my friend, Candace Havens’ (http://www.candacehavens.com/) Writing Workshop: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Write_Workshop/
I’ve been a member for a couple of years now, and I can’t begin to tell you how much I’ve learned. Oh, wait, I’m a writer, so yes, I can tell you.
I LANDED MY FIRST PUBLISHING CONTRACT in large part thanks to the content in this FREE workshop.
Yikes, with all those caps, I’m reminding myself of an as-seen-on-TV ad.
Thanks to Candy herself and the many talented contributors she brings in, I’ve learned a ton, including:
- Developing tag lines
- Using social media most effectively
- Writing Setting
And I’m sure I’m forgetting lots. This is just what I can remember off the top of my head. In other words, the Writing Workshop is very useful and covers many areas authors serious about developing their craft are interested in.
I’ve also made one very dear friend who have become a trusted critique partner. Her name is Laura, and you can visit her blog here: http://lauraleenutt.blogspot.com/. The value of a critique partner or a critique group cannot be understanded. For confirmation of this fact, take a look at this blog by a member of the Cupcake Crew (my local crit group): http://www.juliebrannagh.com/
Right now, Angi Morgan (http://angimorgan.com/) is teaching a FREE workshop on Deep POV. Every writer needs to read through the content in this workshop. If you think you have a handle on deep pov, I challenge you to try and find something in Angi’s lesson that you didn’t know before. I guarantee you will.
Please take a moment to check out the Writing Workshop (link above). It is totally free, but you have to join it (It’s a Yahoo group). You will get something out of it, promise.
