Jackpots & Writing Resources



What do writing and gambling have in common? Go check out my post at The Rose & Thorn Literary ezine's blog and see for yourself.

And here are a few writer resources I thought you might like straight from my bookmarked favorites:

  • Chicken Soup - What they want and how they want it
  • Anthologies Online - Current list of anthology call outs
  • Lotsa freelance and nonfiction info. and resources at Burry Man
  • Like Inspirational topics? Give 2theHeart a look see.
  • Southern humor with a twist? Visit Dead Mule. HeeeHaww! [Note: If you're planning on submitting here, you must fill out the application of Southern roots oath. LOL]
  • Big fat listing of resources available for writers at Duotrope.
  • Dictionary.com [which also has a Thesaurus, translator and other reference tools] and Biblegateway.com [search by Bible version, keyword or topic] are nice places to get the right info. quick.
  • Everything you ever wanted to know about Literary Magazines but were afraid to ask. Gargantuan listing!
  • Really really bad and distasteful e-cards here. [Warning: Addictive!]

Okay, writer people, if you're in the sharing mood, we'd all love a peek at a treasured resource or two, or if you just want to dump praises/thanks on my head, that's good too. ;o) Now, git to writin'!

A late-breaking PS: Linda over at 2nd Cup of Coffee was the Mardi Gras King Cake contest winner, and she's posting thoughts and photos about the experience today. Congrats again, Linda!

Hi Angie. I came over from 2nd cup of Coffee.
It's a pleasure to meet you.

Good lord - asking for anything to be dumped on the head may be injurious to the sanity, let alone safety...

Angie Ledbetter said...

Beverlydru, thanks for stopping by. I'll be coming by your place shortly.

Jinksy, my friend, in my case, at my age and mental condition, it can only help! :)

I would love to get published elsewhere, but I'm too fucking tired at the end of the day.

Vodka Mom said...

wait- am I allowed to say fuck over here??

Angie Ledbetter said...

VM: I'm not into censoring, so say as you please. And good luck on the publishing...you've certainly got enough followers to interest an agent!

Kathryn Magendie said...

I'm going to head over to the coffee place and see the photos - sure enjoyed my King's Cake whilst there in BR -- but sad my visit was cut short ....miss you!

Michelle H. said...

Too busy to think up of any writing resource that you haven't already posted. So I'll just dump praises on your head. Do you prefer coffe cup size or semitruck load?

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!Thank you! Thank you!

Stacy Quarty said...

Thanks for the resources. I would have shared dictionary.com but I see you already have that. I use the thesaurus almost every day!

Jenn Johansson said...

I have one for your list. www.writingexcuses.com It is a podcast that is really funny and so awesome. You should totally go check it out.

Damn! And I thought sure that cake had my name written all over it. I guess I must have confused my name with Baby Jesus. Next time, try not to complicate things and just set the cake aside for me. How 'bout you just give away the Baby Jesus? (Whenever I hear "Baby Jesus" I think of Talladega Nights with Will Ferrell - hilarious dinner scene thanking Baby Jesus!)

Jane! said...

Some day, if I ever become a writer, I'm going to check out some of those sites. For now, I'm going to go with the bad and distasteful e-card site.
Thanks for the tip!

DebraLSchubert said...

Angie, Check out my blog - this post gave me an idea for a post on mine. Plus, I lovey-linked ya!

Terri Tiffany said...

I love anthologiesonline! Lots of good ideas there[[thanks for sharing even more! My favorite part of a blog!

Jessica said...

I'm afraid to check out that link, 'cause I have a feeling I know what writing and gambling have in common, and it depresses me. LOL

Angie Ledbetter said...

Kat, miss you too!!!!!!!!!

LOL, Michelle. No wonder I feel like I've been hammered. Thank YOU. :)

I'm enjoying your newly posted WIP, Stacy.

Thanks, Jenn, I'll do that!

Debra, with all that smack, you'd most probably swallow the plastic baby, so best you didn't win. LOL and thanks for the linky love.

You're welcome, Jane & Terri.

Jessica, it's better news than ya think. :)

The Things We Carried said...

I am still getting the hang of online resources. Thanks!

Deb Shucka said...

Thanks for all the great resources! You are a wealth of wonders.
