Following my friend Jani Grey idea, I’m launching a series of links posts about Writing, Publishing, Querying, Reading, Workshops, Contests, Agents, Conferences,  etc.

I decided to do this because I had thousands of web pages bookmarked, then I had to format my laptop … I forgot to save them and lost them all. So, having posts on links, I’ll never lose them ;)


Today, it’s about WRITING — novel writing, query writing, pitch writing, etc.
