    Fabulous creativity and general writing site

    Discussion in 'General Writing' started by jannert, May 27, 2013.

    Just discovered a fabulous FREE site, devoted to creativity, writing, and all sorts of good stuff. A friend sent it to me, and I'm impressed by the quality and depth on offer. The weekly newsletter, which appears on Sundays, is free, and all you need to do to subscribe is send them your email and name. Great stuff.

    Along with bits of advice on how to be productive as a writer, this Sunday's newsletter contained a long piece by Stanley L Delaney on the difference between good writing and talented writing. It also contained advice from Calvin and Hobbs' creator, Bill Watterson, which was not specific to cartooning, but covered the entire spectrum of how to be creative and what to expect when you are financially successful with what you create.

    Anyway, here's the link: www.[B]brainpickings[/B].org/‎

    Can you fix the link? I think by bolding it, it got broken. :)

    Yeah... I just googled it last night. There are a few interesting articles. And I was glad to see a few up there from Orwell and Delany. :)

    It has just come to my attention that this thread has been reported as SPAM. I am totally mortified. I HATE SPAM, and would never ever post it. I guess I didn't think this would be taken as SPAM because it's a free informational site, and it's not connected to me in any way. I totally apologise if I've messed up here.
