Spring is in the air. As we approach a new season, I thought I would share great resources for writing and blogging.
This weekend, I attended a wonderful workshop sponsored by the South Carolina chapter of the American Christian Fiction Writers. I met the chapter president Fran Strickland, Edie Melson, who writes for Guide Post and whose blog was listed as a 2017 & 2018 Writer’s Digest 101 Top Websites for Writers and Elva Cobb Martin, Christian romance author and vice president of the ACFW SC Chapter.
I learned a great deal about writing and blogging from these experts. Edie presented an excellent presentation on building your social media platform as an author. Her website, The Write Conversation, presents a treasure trove of information some of which she shared in her workshop. On her blog today is a great article entitled Identify Your Authentic Social Media Voice. I encourage you to place this site on your daily reading list. I also highly recommend her book: Connections: Social Media and Networking Techniques for Writers (affiliate link).
Elva presented a wonderful devotion and presentation on writing Christian Fiction.
I will share more next week on writing resources. I will attend another great conference in Spartanburg: the 2018 Carolina Christian Writers’ Conference
