RAOK & FTWA

I'm over at From the Write Angle today talking about the Online Writer's Toolbox tab we have over there. I have one site I use to help me during the 'slash and burn' editing phase. Can you guess what it is? Pop on over and let me know what sites you use to help you out when you're editing or researching or writing or...

In other news, I won a lovely leather journal from Sharon Mayhew over at Random Thoughts. Sharon had a random giveaway to support Angela & Becca's RAOK too. The awesomeness just keeps spreading!

So, instead of 1 critique, I'm going to offer my thoughts to 2 of the people who commented on my last post. Winners are Linda at LD Masterson and Miss Jack Lewis Baillot over at However Improbable. If you lovely ladies would like to send me either your query or first 10 pages, I'd love to have a look and give you my thoughts!

Hope to see over at From the Write Angle!

  30. I often hop over to The Blood-Red Pencil and search for certain topics on writing when I need a "how-to" reminder. Since there are several editors who contribute to the blog, I find it's very helpful.
