istock_generic_191298calendar febI was supposed to be working on an article for the WCYR newsletter, but of course I got distracted half-way through the morning (must be the usnlight) and started reading and site-skipping. Here is a compendium of the goodies I discovered today. Many of the web authors have newsletters or Facebook pages that include valuable information. Just click on the descriptions for the web links.

Self-Publishing Review
Writers Digest – The Best 101 on Self-Publishing Resources
READABILITY – turns web sites into easier-to-read resources
Jane Friedman – Being Human at Electric Speed. Jane’s website is a treasure-trove of really useful information for writers.
Here’s another one from Jane, on Building an Author Platform
Susan Jackson Rogers article on Closing the Gap: Moving from Notebook to Story
Glimmer Train Press – contest listings, a bulletin subscription, excellent FAQs and short story journal for emerging writers
Writer Unboxed – about the craft and business of fiction

Now…it’s back to work for me.
