Back in the early 1990's, there were few resources for writers. An author had to attend a formal school or dig through the library for help. Today, we have the Internet and access not only to information, but also to a supportive writing community.
Here are some websites and groups I've discovered:
American Christian Fiction Writers - ACFW for short. http://www.acfw.com - This organization is devoted to providing educational opportunities, critique groups, and an annual conference. They also have a loop where writers can discuss all aspects of writing, a prayer request loop, and a fiction finder. The annual Genesis Contest for unpublished writers is one of the premier contests available to those in the fiction community.
Writing Blogs - I could write a post with just links to great blogs. Here are a few of my favorites:
Jean Fischer - http://jeanfischer.wordpress.com - Jean is a freelance writer, and formerly worked as an editor for Golden Books. She has a wealth of knowledge and experience in the industry.
Edie Melson - http://thewriteconversation.blogspot.com - I recently discovered Edie's blog. She has great tips on Social Media and other aspects of writing.
Jeff Goins - http://www.goinswriter.com - Jeff gives valuable information on how to expand your blogging platform. I always enjoy his posts.
Christian Fiction Online Magazine - http://www.christianfictiononlinemagazine.com - Bonnie Calhoun is the editor. Numerous authors contribute to this topnotch magazine.
