What are your favorite writing related websites? Please indicate if these sites are secular or Chrisitan. I refer to both kinds of sites but I do like to know what world view they hold. Please also mention whether you need to "join" and if there are any subscription fees.

Some of my favorites are:

Writers Digest (Secular - Do not need to join - Free)
http://www.writersdigest.com/

The SpriritLed Writer (Christian - Do not need to join - Free)
http://www.spiritledwriter.com/

Writers Market (secular - DO need to join - $36.00/yr)
www.writersmarket.com (http://www.writersmarket.com)

Somehow I missed this thread when it first came around...

A few of my favorites:

Directories of Submission Guidelines (http://www.authorlink.com/aguide.html)
Online Rhyming Dictionary (http://www.writeexpress.com/online.html)
Writers Weekly (http://www.writersweekly.com/) (secular; I'm 'grassblade' over there)
Write His Answer (http://www.writehisanswer.com/) (Christian; good conference info)

Myself and several other Christians who are hoping to break into the writing scene have started a forum exclusively for born again, Christian writers who believe in groundbreaking fiction but also believe in honoring God in everything they say and do. On this forum, there are places to discuss matters of literary importance: writer's conferences, bookstores, promoting work, website design, etc; fun, spur of the moment topics and thoughts about plot ideas and other interests relating to writing, (film, books read, etc), and most important, a place to talk about things of Godly importance: personal testimonies, matters of theology, etc. We are also in the process of creating a Christian Writer's webring, to link up Christian writers of similar nature, goals, and philosophies.



When I say "exclusively" for born-again Christians, I mean this: ANYONE is welcome to visit and post replies as guests, but always keep in mind our main goal is to honor and glorify the Lord in everything we say and do, and this should be kept in mind in regards to usernames and speech. We are also not into debating theology, (there is a fine line between dicussing and debating I know - just keep it all "above the belt!"), but we all would be more than happy to share our faith. Other than that, all are welcome.



Emerging Christian Writer's Forum - http://17.freebb.com/index.php?freebb=arvalast&sid=3fe19d6a974e435b50704d1e81f3bd03 (http://17.freebb.com/index.php?freebb=arvalast&sid=3fe19d6a974e435b50704d1e81f3bd03) - the URL is long, because we are still working on getting a specific domain name: ex. www.ecw.org (http://www.ecw.org).( don't click...this is just an example)



Hope to see you there.

Kevin--I just visited and it looks promising. Will you have a critique thread?

Not at the moment, but I'm sure as more people join, that will be a natural addition to the Writer's Discussion Category.

Apparently, the forum is down for the moment...I'll contact the other admin people ASAP to find out what's up...it looks like the whole http://17freebb.com server is down, not just us...

Not very inspiring, I'm sure...
