Twitterific

Here are writing links that I’ve posted to Twitter for the past week.

I’m delighted that now we have an efficient method of locating resources on writing topics when you need them—via the Writer’s Knowledge Base search engine and software engineer and writer Mike Fleming’s ingenuity. The links I tweet (which are writers’ blogs, agents’ and editors’ blogs) all are added to the engine to make it easier for you to access the information you’re looking for.

Hope you’ll come back tomorrow when Mike talks a little about how he came up with the idea for the Writer’s Knowledge Base and how it works.

  1. For some reasons I seem to notice posts about publishing and marketing right now.

    But I have already figured out that some of those ´how-to-promote-your-book-in-your-own-backyard tips are a bit difficult for Danes who publish American ebooks ;)

  2. Thank you so much for these! I haven’t been able to get on the computer much lately and these will help me catch up!

  3. What an awesome list. I don’t know how you manage to keep on top of everything and still find time to write. (Well, I do because I’ve read your other posts.) Thanks for the recap.

  4. Y’all are great for commenting! Thanks and hope you find some great links in the mix. :)
