Greetings from your webmaster.  Over the past couple years, I've spent a great deal of time searching for markets and information.
So You Want to be a Writer

Millions of people have ideas for books - plans to write books - hopes, dreams and aspirations about books, but very few of them are actually writing books. If you want to write, here is some sage advice from some of the world's great authors:

"If there's a book you really want to read but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it."  Toni Morrison

"Don't wait. Writers are the only artists I know who expect to get somewhere by waiting. Writing is what teaches you. Writing is what leads to inspiration. Writing is what generates ideas. Nothing else and nothing less."  Daniel Quinn
So you Want to be a Writer

"Planning to write is not writing. Outlining... researching... talking to people about what you're doing, none of that is writing. Writing is writing." E.L. Doctorow

"The idea is to get the pencil moving quickly. Once you've got some words looking back at you, you can take two or three, throw them away and look for others." Bernard Malamud

"Write about what really interests you, whether it is real things or imaginary things, and nothing else." - C S Lewis

"When genuine passion moves you, say what you've got to say, and say it hot." D.H. Lawrence

WHEN PARKER MET APRIL
WAKING BY STARLIGHT
Recently, I paid a visit to the website of the Canadian Authors Association - Writers helping Writers.  This site is exceptional with links to markets, publishers, writing contests and competition, writing association, along with resources, courses, and software reviews. Truly, everything a beginner, intermediate, or established writer could ask for and more!   Though I will constantly update the site with new information and insights, I would highly recommend you pay a visit to the CAA site. As with Writers' Ink - the CAA is committed to providing writers with the valuable information and insights we need.  Visit the link under Markets
