[Mostly] Wordless Wednesday-Zzzzebra & Helpful Links

So many people posted about zebras as their "Z" post that I felt compelled to share Zeke here. This photo was taken at the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo:

And now for some helpful links:

Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers is having their annual Colorado Gold Writing Contest, which is for unpublished novel-length works. Deadline is June 1. I entered this last year and got some fantastic feedback, so I recommend it.

Windmill Networking is offering a free e-book about using LinkedIn in networking, entitled 30 Minutes to Maximizing LinkedIn. I have not gotten a copy, so can't tell you if it's any good.

Screenwriters, Amazon is having a screenwriting contest.

This sounds like fun: creates a word cloud from your text. Use it for fun or as a tool to see what words you may be overusing.

The Writing Network supports and encourages self-published authors.

Fiction 500 is running a short fiction contest with cash prizes.

Anyone else having trouble getting back into the swing of things? Any links to share?
May you find your Muse.

  4. Thanks for the links. My most used words:


    2 out of 3 ain't bad :) Note to self: say 'fantasy' more...

  5. Thanks for sharing the links. Don't really have ones to share, since I'm pathetic at favoriting pages. No idea why.


  6. Becca, thanks!

    Mshatch, I'm not going to, too!

    J.A., he is, isn't he?

    Shelly, it sounds like you're adjusting well!

    Jamie, I am amused that 'something' is one of your most said words.

    Misha, I was until I made it part of my weekly blogging.

  7. I never stopped, so it's going alright. I decided to switch to trying out the habit of an editorial calendar for the month of May... so far, so good, I guess!!

    Zeke is a cutie!

    In Which We Start Anew

  8. I was about to ask you if you still felt you were supposed to post a wild west story! I see your name on my reader and that's what I think. I may be back in the swing of some things by next week.

  9. Jo, I hope the editorial calendar is still going well for you.

    Chuck, I'm pretty certain I'm still not caught up, and here it is, a month later!
