I've never tried it, but doesn't FictionPress do that sort of stuff?

Uncle Orson (Scott Card) gives writing lessons.

Ian Irvine has some pages on writing.

A link I picked up somewhere else on these boards. This has articles from a variety of writers.

Because I got jipped recently, I feel this is relevent.

Preditors and Editors. a compendium of agents, editors, publishers, and the like who are real and who are just computers trying to steal from you.

Association of Authors' Representatives, which is a good spot to look for agents with credibility.

So, I'm sort of trying to write a supernatural horror TV show pilot while unemployed. Well... it's more like I'm waiting for a friend of a friend to proofread my one-sheet and log-line.

In the meantime, I'm trying to read a bunch of books that'll help me understand the world of television, the nature of horror, and writing.

I've read Stephen King's On Writing, and recommend it. I know it's been mentioned earlier, but it's a really good book about writing in general.

I'm currently engrossed in King's Danse Macabre, a study of horror between the years 1950 and 1980. King knows what he's talking about, and has alot of good insights into what is scary and why.

I also have a reading list. Whether I find these books at the library or get them for Christmas, they seem worthwhile.

The Elements of Style by Strunk and White. It's a writing textbook that Stephen King highly recommends.

The Annotated Supernatural Horror in Literature by Lovecraft. It's an essay on more classical horror.

Also, the Glass Teat essays by Ellison. They're concerned with the television.

Any other suggestions?
