Writers – self-editing, writing prompts and tweets

Whilst surfing around the web indulging my passion for writing I’ve been collecting examples of things I’ve found interesting: There’s an blog I’ve found about self-editing. It seems full of useful advice, including this about interior monologue – using Lord of The Flies as an example see http://www.writeintoprint.com/.

22nd June is National Flash Fiction Day and on the official website are examples of short stories that have won this year’s competition, as well as some writing prompts for story ideas. 

Then I found the service of people willing to review your book, so an opportunity for readers and writers – http://www.booktweetingservice.com/p/like-free-review.html

Using writing and social media for charities seems a fabulous idea – I came across this project which created a graphic novel with collaborative tweeting every day for a year,  for the Teenage Cancer Trust at http://www.3hundredand65.co.uk/blog/  – they raised a huge amount of money. Seems like an inspired use of social media for a really good cause.

I’ve been developing a twitter project – writing daily train tweets on twitter of interesting lines, or overheard dialogue, inspired by my daily commute. You can connect with me on twitter @wordpoppy. I intend to weave these tweets into a longer story at the end of 30 days, or 30 tweets, depending on what comes first.
