A new site for writers, called inkPageant, has launched!
inkPageant is an easy-to-use writer's reference, aggregator, and search engine. Having the pleasure of joining the site before its official launch today, I see huge potential for this site. I have already enjoyed exploring the posts on inkPageant a dozen times, lapping up the information from both professionals and hopefuls like me. And with your help, this could be the #1 place for writers from around the world.
Right now the site holds about a hundred blurbs, all linked to writing ideas, tips, and reviews... and guess what? You can be a part of it for free. You can share your ideas, your tips, and your reviews. For their launch, inkPageant is even holding a contest for a $50 Amazon gift card, where the writing posts you share become your entries.
I also have some great news about my writing--I sent off my first batch of queries yesterday. From one time-efficient agent I already received a reply: "No, thank you."
Polite, sweet, short. Rejected.
Yay. I think I'm going to print it out and hang it on my wall. (I'm being serious here. I'm not disappointed or angry; in fact, I'm just thrilled to receive such a prompt response.)
