Fiction University Made The Write Life's 100 Best Websites for Writers List

This site is a labor of love, and it always makes my day when a writer tells me one of the articles helped them through a tough problem or got them over a writing hurdle. It's why I do it, and why so many of my fellow writers do it--the writing community is a wonderfully supportive group.

So it made more than my day to find out that the site made this year's list of The Write Life's 100 Best Websites for Writers. I'm honored, flattered, and touched. It means a lot to me.

I'm in good company on this list for sure, and I'm thrilled to see so many friends and so many of my own favorite sites. (I'd share that list here, but honestly, I'd practically be re-posting the whole thing)

Thanks so much to everyone who recommended me, and to everyone who comes here when they need a little writing help. You guys are awesome.

  2. Yeah, congratulations. I should probably also say thank you. I've never left a comment here before, but I've visited the site (lurker-style) many times when in need of a little writing advice. :)

  6. Great way to start a new year -- Congrats and YAYYY!

    Was just cruising through past articles yesterday for help to pass along to an author I'm supporting with world-building advice - caught myself thinking "thank goodness she saves these for all of us".... LOL :D

    Now I expand that to say: "thank goodness you share your passion for writing with us!"
