52 Wonderful Twitter Chats for Writers

If you're as much of a Twitter fan as I am, and have learned or are learning about hashtags and hashtag chat groups, you'll like this list of ongoing writerly gatherings. Some are random and some have regular meeting times. Either way, you're sure to find something you like on this list.

Snow White and the Seven Thwarts

If you don't regularly read Chiseled in Rock blog (the official blog of Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers), I highly recommend you begin with Janet Fogg's Monday post, Snow White and the Seven Thwarts. It's a fun post about the writing life. Monday I claimed to be Happy, but yesterday I was definitely Sleepy. Today? It's too early to tell.

What I'm Reading

I'm still reading Deon Meyer's Tracker. NaNoWriMo is slowing me down.

Submissions 101

This is another article worth checking out. BookEnds, LLC has updated the 2009 version of this post to reflect changes in the industry.

What I'm Doing

NaNoWriMo. If you want more details, check out yesterday's post at Chiseled in Rock blog. And if you have the time to listen to a few NaNoWriMo songs, blogger Sommer Leigh has put together a post with several of the video clips all in one convenient place.

That's it. Back to work. Don't forget to stop by tomorrow to meet Barbara Graham.

And people think I'm all over the internet gathering links! Outdid yourself today, Patricia.

Nano and Wednesday scrambles? Who is this woman?

Finger's blazing across the keyboard, she knows no bounds.

Can leap the ottoman in a single stride to catch the coffee that Katie Kitten just tipped off the shelf.

Protector of chocolate the world over...

It's Patty Petunia...Nano super girl!

Pat Hatt said...

Wow quite the collection of links, really are a twitter nut huh?..haha

Margot Kinberg said...

Pat - Thanks so much for these links! I admire you for plugging away at NaNoWriMo, and I'm hoping we'll get a chance to read what you're working on. Looking forward to tomorrow's guest post!

Patricia Stoltey said...

Alex, I can honestly say I've learned to be a speedy surfer.

Oh, Dean, if you only knew the truth...I haven't leaped over an ottoman in years. :)

Pat, I do love Twitter, although I try to keep my own tweets to a minimum. Reading what other folks have to say and following links to great blog posts is what keeps me hooked.

Margot, I hope you get to read the NaNoWriMo novel too (because that would mean I finished the book, completed all the revisions and found a publisher).
