Yesterday was a wee bit busy, so I hope you'll forgive the tardiness of the Friday posting. An emergency trip to the airport first thing in the morning, helping another person clear the rubbish out of their house and then giving her a break from family problems, followed by...I can't remember, but probably total flakyness and sleep.
On the subject of writing, where do you practice your writing and get feedback? I don't just use the writer's group, I also submit work to online sites and magazines. Most won't give feedback except for the form rejection, but some do.
If you write topical comedy, and it's always a good idea to stretch your wings a bit and try something different, try newsbiscuit.com. They don't pay, but to see some of your work in print is always a boost. I don't often contribute, but have had a couple of headlines published recently.
There's always the huffington post and I'm sure that there are others out there that encourage new writers to try their hand. If, like newsbiscuit, you submit via a forum, you can often get feedback from other contributors.
Look around and you'll find a whole world of places that you never knew existed.
