A Great New Site for Women Writers

So I'm a little behind with things, but totally busy at the same time. I only have five minutes before midnight, so want to post something quick so I don't officially miss a day.

This post is dedicated to the brand new (like just over 24 hours new?) awesome writer's website—for the ladies! She Writes. It launched yesterday and already has 250 members or so! It's got discussion groups on everything from the practical like marketing and promotion, literary groups by genre, and a really awesome discussion group on blogging (started by yours truly!).

So you don't have to be a writer with books to be on there—just someone who loves to write and is looking to learn some things about the writing world so they can move forward with the craft (whether you are a blogger, or a poet, or a fiction writer....). Oh, and you do have to be a woman.

It's a really fantastic group of people...high-level professional writers, as well as new folks. Come glean some wisdom! And share some. And be part of the early stages of what is going to grow to be a truly amazing resource.

When you join, look for my group: Bloggers: Let's Make It Work!

I'll be back with more verve in the next couple of days. I think I may be a tad overcommitted. Or just really inspired. It's hard to say which.

Laura, I don't know how you do it all! I'm enjoying the blogger forum at "She Writes" and enjoy being able to interact with the other bloggers there -- getting advice, seeing their blogs, and just feeling more connected to other writers.

Nice post. Just found your blog from She Writes. I didn't realize the network was so new--it seems well established already.

BTW, this is a good way to build traffic--by commenting on the blogs you visit. : )
