ThatGrrl.ca



Not sure where this one came from .... possibly Dave was mailed by the sites creator .... and the site has an esoteric layout that takes a little time to get used to .... but the material is dazzling.

Another one of those creative writing sites that you could happily spend half a day reading without scratching the surface letalone without digesting the material.

There is an astonishing collection of writers quotes which is something I have been looking for for quite a while; there is a hundred or so articles musing on the nature and technique of creative writing and here are about 50 mini exercises in creative writing many of which could be dashed off in 5 mins but many of which could be really quite absorbing.

Here is one exercise....

'Try this: Write about the path not taken. Start with something you did today but imagine your day if you had made a different choice. Just something as simple as missing your bus, taking the other route, wearing a different shirt, etc.'

....thats the sort of thing that gets the mind going.

Really, really super stuff. Cheers thatgrrl.

UPDATE While following a few links around found thatgrrl's blog and this self portrait. Pleased to meet you Laura a.k.a. thatgrrl :-).

The sites were included in an email concerning the Dmoz Directory Submissions and a quick late evening peek was enough to convince me that this would be of real interest and benefit to the Felixstowe Scribblers and Online Jotters. So thanks to Laura for these useful links...

This is a very inspiring website.
It would be great to see a picture of you all. I do hope you'll consider posting one on!
