Just Write BlogCarnival (edition eight)


I’ve found that there are people out there who give out great writing advice and tips. One of these publications is out every week and I’ve decided I’ll post about it and try to contribute. While I’m not in this edition, I’m aiming to be in next weeks. Watch for it on Friday!

Welcome to the January 18, 2008 edition of Just Write. We have some great links this week with very useful and fun information. My personal favorite is from Tip Diva, because it gives great advice for writing essays. I’ll be needing this list soon. *sigh* The link that I found most entertaining comes from romance author Sonja Foust. She uses humor to describe her writing style. ;) Please visit all the links and leave comments. Let them know you found them through this carnival.
