Lots of linkies!
Okay, so I have this filter thingie for my stumbleupon and I was bored the other day without IJ to occupy my brain and I set the filter for "writing" and started clicking around like a maniac. I found some pretty kewl sites:
http://www.authortree.com/About%20AuthorTree --Seems to be a promotional type site to help you sell your own book. I didn't read much beyond the front page, though. If it's what I think it is, I've heard good things about it--there are sites out there that will help you publish the book, print it, and sell it on demand. The price usually pretty reasonable too, but I have no idea how this one works.
http://www.poetrymagazines.org.uk/ --List of mags that take poetry submissions. I know that isn't your cup of tea (or at least, I'm sure that's the case for most of you), but if you ever find the need, it looks pretty useful.
http://www.winningwriters.com/ --Seems to be a place for tons of writing contests (both poetry and prose, I think). It says they're free, so I dunno if it's a scam like poetry.com. Best to be wary before joining them, but if it's legit, it could be an interesting site.
http://www.sfwa.org/writing/chadvce.htm --A resource to help you write with a stronger voice. Seemed pretty interesting, I read some of it. If you're looking to improve or just really bored, it's a nice page to check out.
http://www.lifehack.org/articles/lifehack/fifty-50-tools-which-can-help-you-in-writing.html --A list of links with fifty tools to help you write stronger. Like the last one, only this one is more extensive, and the links go by topic, so it's easier to navigate what you want to work on. I'll be going back to this one, it seems useful (a lot of the topics are things I've read before by other writers and editors, and they seem to be fairly true, so, yay, learning!).
http://wordsmiths.net/Maygra/RTG.htm --A random title generator!! It's so fun!! A friend of mine use to have a comm on LJ where he would post random titles like this and you'd write a story for them, like the way you would prompts... I think this would be useful if you're stuck for ideas, and you find a title you like. It's interesting working backwards like that--I've done it before, several times, and it's fun. Try it!
http://www.writing-world.com/fiction/RTC.shtml --I haven't actually read this yet, but it's an essay titled "Research, Track and Conquer: How to Research Short Fiction Markets, Track Submissions, and Ultimately Get Published" so it should be useful for ALL of us if it's, well, useful. ^^
And finally, the poetry sites! I always work better with a poem in mind, or a quotation, especially with longer stories (I've done this for SFH, E, as well as a few of the oneshots and their sequels), so when these sites popped up, I figured they might be useful for inspiration or just general browsing. ^^
