The writer’s life can be a lonely life. Most of us work at home or in snipets throughout the day when we get a chance. We build our ideas and write our stories. We revise and rework and sometimes redo the whole story all by ourselves. Very. Very. Solitary.
But it doesn’t have to be. There are groups you can join and people you can meet. This is such an valuable resource.
But what if you live in a rural community and don’t have access to these great people? Turn to the internet. There are so many opportunities out there now. FaceBook has a vast network of different groups. There are forums you can join t0o… outside Social Media.
One of those I want to talk about today is:
THE BLUE BOARDS
The Blue Boards started many moons ago by author Verla Kay. She wanted a place where people could come together, get support, share ideas, and share information. Late last year, SCBWI took over The Blue Boards. It still looks the same, the same people are there, and some great information is to be had. This was one of the first forums I ever ran across 14 years ago. I bookmarked it immediately and have returned and returned and returned to it time and again.
I hope you find it as valuable resource as I have.
Do know of another open forum with great information? Where do you get the most recent information from? What is one website you just can’t live without?
