  1. Hi quillsandzebras – many thanks for including my blog, Online Novels, in your list of Web Fiction Directories.

    What a great resource for aspiring writers! I’ve been trying to put together a list of links to help students who ask me about creative writing (like I would know anything :P) and you’ve got almost all of the topics I’ve been collecting already up here.

    If you like, you could include “pantsing” vs. plotting with showing vs. telling.

      Good idea — I need to go through the links and update them actually! I keep stumbling across useful posts when I am researching the topic myself, I figure it’s helpful to show what I find to others!
