Ruminations of a Red Dirt Hussy

What doesn’t kill you might help your writing. Or not.

While I should have been writing, I put together this list of apps, software, critique groups, and Web sites reported to be helpful to writers. I suppose they are, if you actually write instead of trolling the Internet looking for apps, software, critique groups, and Web sites reported to be helpful to writers. Or writing blogs about apps and software reported to be helpful to writers. So I’ve got 8 pages of them. I’ll post them by section, and if you see mistakes, keep it to yourself. Or go write your own blog about how riddled with mistakes my blog is. And correct the mistakes, while you’re at it.
