Short post today, but I wanted to take a minute to share some info on the Virtual Writer's World.
Virtual Writer's World is an online writer's community that helps writers connect and grow over social media and other online outlets. They are active on Twitter, Facebook and Second Life, running daily writing activities like the the Writer's Dash, Word Scrimage, Open Mics and workshops. They host small writers competitions (vote on June's Competitive Dash) and publish a small ezine writers can submit fiction, poetry and non-fiction for.
Writing can be a solitary activity, and just taking part in the twice daily Writer's Dash, sharing the results and discussing writing with other writers, has made a huge difference in my focus and commitment to my writing.
If you are looking for a way to connect with other writers, I highly suggest you check them out.
