A Couple Of New Outlets...

I belong to lots of different places other than FaceBook and Twitter where I can actively post and stuff.

Stuff. Lots of stuff.

One of the places I found a very long time ago is AbsoluteWrite.com. I found it through a friend of mine who I had met when I first "published". Absolute Write had a HUGE long post about Publish America.

At first, the posts made me feel like I wanted to throw up. I couldn't believe I had not followed one of THE first rules of publishing: RESEARCH!!!! But the more I posted, the more I became a part of the community. This was the first site of mine to fall to the wayside when things got hectic for me. Because even though I was welcomed there, I still felt embarrassed for being a fool.

The other site I joined right away during my PA fiasco was WritersCafe. They're an awesome little community as well. I feel like I want to prove that I have taken advice and have become a better writer and know to do my research these days.

Not sure how many of you utilize these two sites. But if you don't, I would recommend it. There's lots of useful information, places to market, things like that. You can find me in either places listed under Caledonia Lass. That's my user name and I'm sticking to it. ;) I shared my two short stories from Writing.com's writing prompt contest. I don't know what else I will share, but we'll see.

Have a great rest of the weekend.

I've not had a shot at those, but I'll sure as hell take a look see. Thanks for the links :)
