useful links

These are some websites I’ve come across that have been insightful and helpful while pursuing a writing life. A writing life…what does that mean? To understand its meaning, I ascribe to Steven Wright’s wise observation, “There’s a fine line between fishing and just standing on the shore like an idiot.”

Anyhow, these sites have helped me keep going. I welcome suggestions of others.
