Happy Tuesday, dear writing friends!


Holly Lisle’s official website: A huge resource for writers – many writing courses and articles to be found here.


Elizabeth S Craig on Twitter: Tweets many quality writing resources and articles throughout the day.


April Brown’s Writer’s Resources: Categorized writing articles/resources.


The Indie Exchange: For authors, bloggers, and readers.


KindleFinds: They promote eBooks that don’t suck (seriously, it’s their tagline).


Master List of Writers on Google+: Post from Debbie Ohi.


Write or Die: I’ve posted this one before, but it’s worth mentioning again. Click if you’re having trouble meeting your word count (like so many of us creative souls; daydreams are so much more fun).


Grammarly on Facebook: Grammarly isn’t a free service, but you’ll want to “like” them just for the status updates (lots of humor).
