Writing Links I Promised

Two weeks have passed since the workshop and my decision to pull out of the race for publishing, and I still feel I made the right decision. What does that say??

In an effort to carve that effort from my life, I've unsubbed from lists and newsletters not related to my role as ACFW Carolinas Area Coordinator, and cleaned out the writing folder in my Internet bookmarks. As you can see, I'm also making changes to this page. The writing links on the side bar are now gone, but if you've found your way here searching for excellent writing advice, check out the links below:

Thanks for the linkback to Seekerville.

I encourage you to follow your heart in all that you do.

Thank you, ma'am. I finally feel like I'm on the right track. I havent a clue what that is, but at least it feels right.

I intended to do this before I left ACFW, but I'd like to (and still plan to) thank everyone at Seekerville for all the fun, advice, and support you offer. Y'all are fantastic.

Thank you, Camy! And thanks again for leading the synopsis class. Not that I'm credible reference at the moment, lol, but it was quite helpful. The synopsis I wrote for this year's TBL contest was my best to date. My score wasn't half bad!

Hi Kimberli! Thanks for linking to my Christian Writer's Den. It's been such a joy to have the site and hang out with other writers there! Be blessed, my friend!
