Writer’s Resource: ERWA

Erotica Reader’s and Writer’s Association

I debated including ERWA in my list of resources since it is a bit edgier than anything else I’ve posted, but erotica is a legitimate, and growing, genre.  Even Gen Fiction can have a well written romance with a steamy sex scene.

ERWA’s focus is on the “world of erotica and sensual pleasures.”

The site does provide resources for writers of erotica, such as stories and calls for submissions. But, it also provides links to adult movies and forums for adult issues. If you are looking for something specific, the offerings are clearly marked so you won’t stumble across something you didn’t want, or mean, to see.

Writer’s Resource: Publishers Marketplace

Publishers Marketplace

Publishers marketplace is the place to go for current publishing news.  They offer a newsletter, industry news, contact information, a job search, and sales tracking.

There’s a catch.  Some of it is free, some of it is only available to members.  Members pay for the privilege of being members.

Writers Resource: Snowflake Guy

Snowflake Guy

Randy Ingermanson, “the snowflake guy,” runs the Advanced Fiction Writing site.  There, he details his snowflake method for outlining/drafting a novel, which is what he is most well-known for.

He provides some free tools, including the snowflake method and an e-zine.

If it seems like the snowflake method might work for you, he offers a software program based on the steps.  That part you have to pay to get.

Writer’s Resource: Funds for Writers

Funds for Writers

Funds for Writers is exactly what it sounds like.  Hope Clark, the creator of the site, scours for information that will help fund a writers life, be they grants, contests, or publishers.  Once a week, on Friday’s, Hope sends out a free newsletter with what she has found.  Or you could pay for a subscription for more information.

Every now and then, there is a bonus goody, a listing for a magazine looking for a short story instead of articles, or an agent looking for clients.

Writer’s Resource: Memoriam 2013

I originally planned to share a link for a weekly newsletter I get, but then I opened an email from Writer’s Relief.  The first article included in their email was an In Memoriam slideshow for some of the writer’s lost this past year.

The world lost a lot of talent.  Great talent.

I hope the new year bring you everything you need and more.

May the muse be with you,

Writer’s Resource: Writers Digest

Writer’s Digest

I thought long and  hard about what my first writing resource link should be.  Okay, not really.  But I wanted something that would encompass everything I wanted to do with this blog.  Writer’s Digest does the job.  They are all about educating the writer.

It’s the mother-load of information in various formats and it comes in a well-organized package.  They offer webinars and tutorials.  They have a magazine and an e-newsletter.  They have links to resources, conventions, articles, blogs, and contests.  Each link is easy to follow and they offer suggestions on what else to look at.

If you write novels, short stories, or poetry, you can’t go wrong looking here.
