Just Write It

Shirley Jump, author of ten books and a zillion articles has started a new writing Yahoo group, Just Right It. Here's a description from the group homepage:

New to the fiction thing? Then come on over for some helpful tips and discussion on taking your fiction up a notch or two. This is NOT a critique group, nor is it a place to post your 1200-page treatise on the walking catfish. It's a discussion group about writing fiction, led by award-winning romantic comedy author Shirley Jump who writes six books a year and is still (relatively) sane.

In the week since she started the group, Shirley has already tackled the topics of beginning a book (posts 75 and 92) and writer's burnout (141 and subsequent posts), plus has posted files on "what rejection letters really mean." This looks to be a great writing discussion group, so if you're interested, just click on the link below to join. You can choose to receive individual emails, daily digest (recommended) or to read posts from the site, whichever works best for you. No matter which option you choose, there is already some great info and support posted there.
