Sites to Behold from Deb Kim

I’ve found the writing community to be incredibly generous and helpful to each other. From the first Yahoo group I joined in 2005, to this blog, support is everywhere. I have a page I send to people who say, “I have this book idea,” or “How do I get published?” It has books, websites and blogs.  Feel free to add your own suggestions in the comments. I’d be remiss not to mention my favorite writing blog first though. Can you guess what it was? Click HERE for a trip down memory lane, and BYOG. (Points to whoever can de-code that in the comments.)

  1. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Bird by Bird. Have yet to read “On Writing,” which is just bizarre because I love Stephen King. Eats Shoots and Leaves is among my fave nonfiction books ever, and I even have my daughter into it — Truss writes picture books with the same message.

    GREAT GREAT resources, Kim!!!! Thanks!

    xo,

  2. Wow! these are great Kim. Thanks!

    We also read Eats Shoots and Leaves here! Summer practices by changing her voice to reflect the sentence meaning.
