Interesting Writer's Blogs on Linked-In

by Steven J. Clark on 06/07/13

    I have only put my little toe into the incredible pool of people, resources and information available to writers.  One of the corners of the pool is the blog groups that inhabit Linked-In.  I've joined three: Fiction Writers Guild, Author U, and the Crime Fiction group. 

    My only previous experience with 'groups' was when I played around a little in AOL's chat rooms and with some of the writer's groups on My Space.  Needless to say, based on both experiences, my expectations were not high.

  But I was pleasantly surprised to find these Linked-In groups thoughtful, insightful and informative. These groups include a fairly large population of writers whom I consider a lot more sophisticated than I, so as a neophyte, I did not start out posting comments right  away.  I've only posted three or four times and have been pleased with the respectful responses I've received.  When I compared this experience with some of the mean, spiteful, belittling responses I sometimes received from My Space groups, there was no comparison.   If you're on Linked-In and are curious or aspire to write, I encourage you to take a look at these groups.

    I have posted the first chapter of my untitled second book in the Sam & Cass series on the website (click the 'Other Writings' tab on the main page).  Take a look and see what you think. I would appreciate any feedback you care to leave on this blog.  I'm working on another WordPress blog which I will link to here.  You'll see it when I get everything designed and linked up.

    Hope you all have a great day.  Keep reading and keep writing

Blog Instructions
   A couple of quick things: Since I am the dictatorial owner of this site, I'm the one who gets to choose all the topics.  It's the only place where I get to exercise unrestrained, absolute and completely unreasonable power, and my wife gave me permission to say that.
   Now that my ego has been thoroughly satiated let me tell you that contributing your comments to this blog is really quiet simple.  Under each of my posts you will find a 'Comments' link.  Click on the link and you will be taken to a comments menu where you leave your name (real or made up) and your comment.  
   Once you've composed your pithy and appropriate contribution you will close your comment by clicking on 'done'.  It then go away until I review it and allow it to be posted.  
   I am a light-handed reviewer.  I don't allow you to cuss like a sailor or post untastefully salacious material.  It's okay to criticize and disagree with me so long as you are not disagreeable in doing so.  I view my role as a reviewer to be not so much a censor as a moderator.
   The most important thing is that comments be interesting rather than inane, pertinent rather than petulant, and where possible, entertaining.  And of course, sycophantic, obsequious praise is always acceptable.
   If you have any questions, email me at sjc@cut.net.
   Now, let the conversations begin.
