Hoppin' Down the Blog Trail

This week's question:
For me, one of the most useful tools in my writing arsenal is Urban Dictionary. What is your most referred to website for your writing?

You know how you can't eat just one potato chip? Well, it's almost impossible for me to cite just one website. I read dozens of blogs; I google all day long; I use the online dictionary and thesaurus. When I find a treasure, I share it with you. But I never miss Kristen Lamb's posts; her blog is a virtual treasure chest of information, both on the craft and the business of writing. So there you have it.

Hello Pam

I'll have to check out Kristin's blog.

I've been constantly referring to a forum site all about Sheffield - an industrial city in the UK and it's been v valuable for researching my current WIP.

Very pleased to have found your blog and look forward to following your posts and writing.

warm wishes
