Purrsuits' Writers' RestStop
you know you can't go wrong with a site that starts out with a name like
Creative Purrsuits. I mean we all know about the corollary between writers
and cats, right?
seriously, if you are looking for a new material to help you with your creative
endeavors, try RestStop Writers’ Newsletter, at www.creativepurrsuits.com/reststopnews/index.html.
Created to “stimulate and inspire you to bigger and better things in your
writing career,” RestStop is a graphically pleasing site with lots of links
and numerous sidebars of information important to writers. The current issue
includes a look at creating great characters, a part of the regular writing
exercises column by Rita Marie Keller, as well a look at the connection between
health and writing, by Joy Held.
on-line newsletter also features a number of articles, including tips on writing
for the greeting card companies, how to write Ezine articles that get read, and
keeping your science in your articles. There are writing exercises, and a
list of interesting web sites to check out. Be sure to check out the links
at the very bottom of the page. They're easy to miss the first time
through, but they're well worth your attention.
the current issue isn’t enough for you, be sure to check out the archives.
There are over thirty more articles waiting to be discovered! Like all writing
sites, some articles are better than others, but I found a number of them that
were helpful. The material covers a wide range of the writing spectrum, with
everything from organizational aides to bottom-line writing skills. 'Eight Great
Ways to Jump Start Your Writing' is a great piece on little things that can help
you overcome writer's block. And ' Holey 3x5 Cards Empower Creativity and
Organization' had a very interesting idea for sparking creativity.
I mention it has a cat theme?)
for a site with the modest ambition of adding a little lift to a day, Creative
Purrsuits goes far beyond that goal! 'Let's get
inspired' is the theme, and The RestStop for Writers lives up to that proposal.
While you are wandering through the site, also be sure to check out the numerous
links found on different pages. Sign up for the newsletter. Read
Miss Tabby's advice.
I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.
don't forget the cats...
