WD Forum

I may have brought this up before, but I am a member of the Writer's Digest Forums.

The forums are a place on the web where aspiring and professional writers can mix, mingle, and meet. I have been posting on there for a couple of months now and have learned more about writing, getting an agent, and getting published than I have in the last two years!

I post this not merely for information, but with the hopes that any of you guys who might be interested in writing (hint, hint guys) might go there and join the conversation. I have had my name in the newsletter, met several published authors, received a free magazine from WD, and recently even received a free novel!

The novel is a brand new book by debut author Brian Strause titled Maybe A Miracle. It was sent to me and ten other people out of the over 600 users on the forums. We are the core review/discusion group for the novel and are there to ramp-up the Book Buzz forum! This sort of thing is right up Brew's alley!

Anyway, I just wanted y'all to have a chance to come on in and join-up if you want. It's lots of fun and you'll meet many, talented, nice people.

Cool place Sip. I've gotten several hits off of you mentioning my little blog on that forum. Thanks for that.

I'm a little afraid to join simply because I've got so many other places that I check into each day that I just don't have the time to go elsewhere.

I try to keep my blog going, I check in here with you guys, I deal with blogcritics and a side group stemming from that site.

Speaking of writing, joining blogcritics is super easy for anyone interested. They take reviews, so Jamison take note with your review writing, and original fiction which means sipper. They also have a slew of political/culture writing, mullins I'm looking at you. Really all the things we write here, could go on blogcritics.

The thing with them, is they get tons more exposure. Anyone interested in being read by more than us should definitely talk to me about joining.

Yeah, I try to hook us up with some exposure from some pros and starters there on WD. There are VERY talented writers who post regularly on there and we talk fairly often with published writers, too!

Just wanted to let y'all know about it. Between WD Forums and this blog, my web-based communication is pretty well taken.
