Holiday gift ideas: Not too late to ask for these...
Friends and family don't know what to buy you for a holiday present. Why? Because they observe you hunched over your computer, or writing in notebooks. They can't buy you time, they can't buy you inspiration or courage, so they might buy you a new journal, pen, or another mug.
Besides suggesting all the wonderful books written by writers for writers, here are a few other great ideas that don't require wrapping! Ask for a subscription to an online writers organization. They'd never think of it, but you would so enjoy getting grounded in such a group.
Drop these ideas around the house so you can connect with writers of books, blogs, business and lucrative freelance venues.
American Society of Journalists & Authors
MediaBistro (with the AvantGuild add-on if you've been very good)
SPAWN - Small Publishers, Artists and Writers Network
