Seeing the Scribblerati badge on the top left hand corner of my blog, many people have asked me about this site. So I decided to address this question in a blog post for everyone. Scribblerati is a wonderful networking site for writers and illustrators from all over the world. This Ning site is a Scribe’s Sanctuary, open to writers and illustrators at different stages of publication. There is no distinction; even writers seeking publication are a part of this site.
Lia Keyes, British Author, now settled in California is the creator and administrator of the fabulous Scribblerati, a site where one can meet writers with common interests, chat with other writers, post pages of one’s manuscripts for critiques, exchange ideas and get feedback from other writers and also post blogs, book trailers and videos. The variety of ways to interact with other writers and illustrators are endless.
Most of the writing friends I have met online have been via Scribblerati. Actually its only after reading the blogs posted on Scribblerati that I was tempted to take the plunge into blogosphere. If any of my writing friends want to join Scribblerati, they are welcome.We Scribblerati members look forward to seeing you all there.
I came across another amazing site EditMinion which is a robotic copy editor to help us refine our writing by finding common mistakes. It pointed out my mistake, which is over use of the Passive Voice.
Another useful site which I am sure many writers are familiar with is the Writer’s Digest. The site hosts everything from writing advice and prompts to community forums and blogs. One can also register for the Writer’s Digest’s E-Newsletter.
A site that I have saved to tackle during the weekend is Bonnie Neubauer's Online Story Spinner which offers millions of computer generated story prompts for creative writers. The Story Spinner provides setting, starting phrases and four words that must be included in your story. During the weekend I will hopefully do few such prompts.
Have you used any of these online sites? What has your experience been with such sites?
