 Check out the May/June 2013 – “Writer’s Digest for The 15th Annual “101 Best Websites for Writers.” Tiffany Luckey, with Ophelia Thomas compiled the selections. Here are my personal top six favorites from the list.  But depending upon your writing needs there are many to explore.

--  Jane Friedman’s website –
     Examines writing and publishing in the digital age.
--  Preditors & Editors –
     Looks at scams, fraud, & “slicky-icky” creeps preying on writers.
--  Writer Unboxed website –
     Gives craft & business advice.
--  C.Hope Clark’s website –
     Gives information on writers markets that pay.
--  The Review Review –
     Gives comprehensive guide to latest issues & needs of lots of publications.
--  Jeff Goins, Writer   --
     Gives positive inspiration to writers on craft & living as a writer.

For details on these and other sites useful to writers go to the Writer’s Digest website found at

This is a reading week for me, as well as a week for exploration, while I refresh my experience banks for future writing projects. I am on vacation from my regular writing projects. And it is sunny and lovely here in Hawaii.
