Another blog – this one for

Filed under: Uncategorized — Towse @ 10:53 pm

Decided to setup another blog — one dedicated to writerly links. has over 1500 links that are checked for deadwood regularly. The links are sorted into nine major groups and almost one hundred subgroups. The site has been mentioned favorably in writers newsletters, on writers’ sites, on mailing lists and in newsgroups and is visited by writers from all corners of the world.

I plan to use this new blog to pop up descriptions of some of the links I’m adding to and descriptions of some of the links that are already there.

This blog will be a means of getting a look at what’s new at and a tour of what’s there.

At the bottom of each item that has a link from, I’ll add a reference to where on the site you can find that link and others like it. The reference will be xxx|yyy, meaning you can find the link in yyy subgroup of the xxx group.
