During the past several years, I've been active in a writing group called the Writing Wombats. Our home on the web is on Gather.com. The wombats love to write, talk about writing and keep in touch with each other. Recently we started a group blog which focuses on many different aspects of writing and includes posts from several of the wombats, including myself.
You can find the latest posts of our group at Wombat Wisdom.
Today, Borders announced it is reorganizing under Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings. This isn't necessarily the end for Borders, but there are no doubt tough times ahead. I've put together a few thoughts on what this means for readers and writers in my post entitled: Notes on the Borders Affair
This is one of these posts where my love of writing and experience in business intertwine. The wombats have lots of insight on the craft, marketing and publishing sides of writing. If you like writing and want to know more about how writers view the world, I suggest you include a link to Wombat Wisdom in your RSS reader. I've learned a lot from hanging with these writers and I suspect you'll soon find yourself wanting to hear more.
