By C.L. Beck
To set the stage for this poetic piece of nonsense, imagine you have a voice like Julie Andrews, and you're in an Austrian castle during a thunderstorm, singing this song to a group of writers.
Publishers’ blog sites
And writers’ home pages,
And stories in stages,
Places that all help a writer to think,
These are a few of my favorite links.
Agents who guide us
And answer our questions,
Authors who listen
And give us suggestions,
People who just help a writer to think.
They are a few of my favorite links.
When the “no” comes,
When my mind blanks,
When I’m feeling sad,
I simply go click on my favorite links,
And then I don’t feel … so bad.
The links below are some of my favorites. Please note that I am not endorsing them in any way, they just happen to be a few of the sites I like to visit and that I think you might enjoy. In addition, please check out the links for our bloggers, listed at the right, under LDS Writing Links.
