Writing Links

Postby xcheck24 » Wed Oct 12, 2005 10:22 am

Thought I'd start this thread for people to add to as they come across the links.

Found this one today:
http://www.easybib.com/

You can generate a bibliography on the site and save it as a Word document, email it to yourself or just view it on the screen so you can copy and paste. I just used it. A little limiting, but a good tool!

It's actually mine, but it's a Livejournal community I created back before the summer for fantasy writers looking to be/find a beta reader. Right now you have to apply to join (you also have to have an LJ account which is something I can't help), but since we're coming up on having 100 members, more or less, we might do something where we'll let people join without having to apply for a month or so. We also have a web site for it, which is http://www.scattereddelusions.com/CreativeFantasy . If you're going to join the site, you have to join the community first and use your LJ username to join the site so that the mod in charge of the site knows that you're a member. ^_^

unfortunately they've suspended registration while moving servers

and then a cool thing where you can create your own wiki:

I recently made a message board for writers called Inspired Writers. The web site is http://www.freewebs.com/inspired-writers/index.htm, and the message board is http://inspiredwriters.createmybb.com/index.php.

Am I allowed to add my own link? We recently added to the Renegade Writer site: a writers' markets wiki, e-courses on topics like food writing and writing for trades, and examples of real query letters that sold articles:

I hope you like it!

This is a cool site to help you keep track of subs. It also has a "Who Reps Who" database.

Here's a great site for randomly generating writing tools.
