I receive numerous emails from various writing related sites. You may or not be familiar with the ones I use, and you may have your own. A list of my favourite ones follow, and I'd appreciate a heads up on any site not mentioned that Storypot readers have found useful. Of course, feel free to warn us about any sites that aren't particularly useful for writing purposes as well.
• Daily Writing Tips
• The Urban Muse
• The Renegade Writer
• Author Magazine
• Wordsmith's A Word A Day
• Advanced Fiction Writing Blog
• The Tequila Thursday Writer's Club
• Katalina's Playroom
The above are a few I regularly look to for writing tips, and inspiration.
Keeping abreast of all the email information I receive from these sites is a challenge, but I never fail to learn something new each day, or to find a better way to do something. A believer in lifelong learning, I don't think any person ever learns everything they need to know to be perfect at their craft. I aim to keep honing my craft til they pry my keyboard out of my cold, dead hands.
This weekend the Professional Editor's Group (PEG) is hosting a copyright workshop on Saturday morning, at the very low investment of R200 for non-members. I urge those of you who are here in Jozi and not busy this weekend to take advantage of the opportunity. Damaria has already provided the information previously.
Please let me know of any websites, free email newsletter, or other material that you find helps you in your writing. I'd appreciate it.
