2005-07-01 [PamelaT]: This is a remarkable idea. I can't wait to see what more you add.

2005-07-04 [RiverStar]: I agree it's a great idea. But then I think this who site is a great idea.

2005-07-11 [PamelaT]: True. Very true.

2005-07-13 [PamelaT]: That last link will really come in handy, thanks again!

2005-07-15 [RiverStar]: Which one? The Dan Perez one?

2005-07-16 [PamelaT]: yes

2005-07-16 [Font]: I thought it was good too ;)

2005-07-16 [RiverStar]: hehehe was hesitant about that one from appearance, but never judge a book by it's cover!

2005-07-17 [Freak03]: I have another website that you can do contests in for poems, I can give it to you if you like.

2005-07-17 [RiverStar]: Sure. Just message it to me.

2005-07-17 [Freak03]: ooo I see the sry

2005-07-17 [RiverStar]: no i just added it

2005-07-17 [Freak03]: Oh... lol.. I thought... uhh nevermind

2005-07-18 [zansola]: a lot of information in that "Manuscript formatting" page contradicts itself and is wrong. I suggest that every beginning writer go to their local library and check out a copy of The Beginning Writer's Guide and look in the appendix.

2005-07-18 [RiverStar]: Hm..That is a good book. I'm still looking for a better Manuscript Formatting site...

2005-07-19 [zansola]: good!...i guess...

2005-07-20 [PamelaT]: I was told by many of my college professors that using a set manuscript format when writing a novel was a sure fire way of begging for people to die from boredom while reading your just a something to thing about.

2005-07-20 [PamelaT]: By the way, can I spam in here? Teehee...I have a contest called The Lord of Sands Contest Please check it out!

2005-07-20 [Mister Saint]: I don't know if it's listed here already, but I picked up a book called 'the Writer's Market' at the bookstore today, and it contains all sorts of stuff, from manuscript formatting to query letters and agents to publishers. Would this be something to bring up here?

2005-07-20 [RiverStar]: Hmm...That is a great book too. Most of the stuff up here is just online resources. Maybe I should add some listings of books too.

2005-07-20 [PamelaT]: That sounds like an amazing book! I will have to check that out soon!

2005-07-23 [RiverStar]: I think I am going to need to reformat this page alittle. It's going to get way too long and confusing...

2005-07-23 [Mister Saint]: It shouldn't be a really big thing to divide it into sections. By the way, let me know if and when you need buttons and banners for this page, and I'll get to that.

2005-07-24 [RiverStar]: Hmm...that would be a good idea...

2005-07-28 [PamelaT]: Everything looks nice to me.. =0]

2005-07-28 [RiverStar]: *smiles* Just thought alittle reformatiing would make things simplier

2005-08-01 [RiverStar]: Thanks for the Banner, [Mister Saint]!

2005-08-01 [Mister Saint]: ^-^ No problem, pookie! Er, Riverstar!

2005-10-13 [Kieli]: Woah... Okie... Big job. Am I just collecting and listing more resources?

2005-10-13 [RiverStar]: Yes, exactly.

2005-10-14 [Kieli]: *pokes around in the wiki and puts them all of watch* Okely dokely! :)

2005-10-24 [Kieli]: Ok... I need to split this up into sections... Its huge and I found it to be very helpful...

2005-11-16 [Kiddalee]: Wait a second... when you say, "Writing Magazine," do you mean "Literary Magazine"?

2005-11-16 [Font]: That's rather a trivial comment. I would still infer that a writing magazine was related to writing Wouldn’t you?

2005-11-21 [Kiddalee]: "Writing Magazine" implies a magazine about writing, but the traditional use for "Literary Magazine" is a magazine that publishes short literature-the ones you send manuscripts to.

2005-11-21 [Font]: Magazines about writing should be listed too, and it would be pointless having two sections. Perhaps it should say writing and literary.

2005-11-28 [Kieli]: *pops her head in and starts separating that link up into sections*

2006-01-16 [Kiddalee]: Pardon me, but ths page looks rather crowded with a divider in between every single link. They draw my eyes away from the links and detract from the usefulness of this page. Perhaps you should consider just using the first two and the last divider.

2006-01-19 [Font]: How about now?

2006-01-19 [Kiddalee]: It's much better now, though I'm going to check if it wouldn't look better without the first divider as well.

2006-01-19 [Kiddalee]: I like it without the second. What say ye?

2006-01-19 [Font]: I say it looks great :P Change what you want by the way whenever you want :P

2006-02-09 [RiverStar]: Resource team....I found a site i don't have time to find a good place to sort it to.

2006-02-11 [Kiddalee]: Thankies. ***sticks it in Writing Software*

2006-11-26 [iippo]: I came across - it looks interesting but I don't know whether it's a scam or a legit paying thing... Any thoughts? Any other wiki that would be more suited for my question?

2006-11-28 [Kiddalee]: Well, Scams has its comments section, as well as a section for places that are still being looked at. This is fine. Thanks for the tip.

2006-11-29 [Child of God]: Any company that uses a service like Gmail or Hotmail for it's services should be suspicious. Used to work for ISP Tech Support and that's the general advice we told people.
