Writing is a lonely business.
For the first two years of writing I more or less created stories in a bubble,
with only the occasional handwritten rejection slip a link to the writing
Then I found the internet,
and a whole new world opened up for me. I met other writers and learned more
about my craft. Below are some suggested writing links that have helped

group for science fiction, fantasy and horror writers.

market listing for genre writers, plus articles and reviews.
