Strictly Writing is a blog set up and run by a group of professional writers. There are two very good reasons for visiting this blog.
1. They run a short story competition which is free to enter but which offers cash prizes of £300.00 and publication on the website. That’s a good enough reason on it’s own, for me. And I have, in fact, entered. It’s easy enough. You just stick your story into the body of an email and away you go. Simple. I love things that are simple and that might, just might, involve me in receiving money.
2. The site is crammed full of entertaining, interesting, professional, amusing, well-written, considered and relevant advice, tips, information and inspiration. You could do worse than browse the archives here. There is bound to be something to interest even the most experienced of writers as well as the newbie. But, don’t take my word for it; have a look. http://strictlywriting.blogspot.com/2010_08_01_archive.html
