    Andy, that question might do better in the "self-promotion" thread.

    Mice9, I don't think you're posting your question in quite the right place. While I see that your desire was not to create a new thread, the intent of this tread is for posting links to resources that writers can use to help them in their craft, not for addressing questions from writers about technique. So you're much less likely to get an answer to your question here, since the people stopping by in this thread are looking for links to things.

    I think you would be better off starting a new thread to ask your question, so that you can benefit from all the folks in the Writing thread having an opportunity to consider your query.

    Thanks for these resources, everyone. This could really help me. I've added nearly ever link to my favorites list.

    A very interesting article (pdf) on teaching punctuation. A couple of nice ideas that help you look at what other author's do, such as "a hierarchy of punctuation marks" and "raising".

    Finding an agent

    Can anyone recommend an agent for a soon-to-be-released YA Fantasy novel?

    kalitara, this particular thread is not the right place to ask that question. The intention of this thread is to provide a place to list resources for writers to assist with their craft.

    I would suggest you search the Writing forums for agent-related topics. I don't think you're likely to find someone who will just pop up names for you, however. It's a bit harder than that to find an agent willing to represent your work, I'm afraid.

    Important points on how to submit, and the process of acceptance and publication.
    Is there a web site to view or submit to? Or is that a Book title?

    Excellent resource for sci-fi writers, from space basics and realistic spaceships to hand-held lasers, spacesuits and aliens:

    Stumble helped me find this wonderful thread, showing pictures of London from the late 1800's. The feel of the city is just the kind I am trying to evoke in my WIP, and should inspire anyone trying to write about a city between the standard castle-fortress medieval trope and the modern era.

    A fascinating contrast - New York at almost the same time, looking vastly more modern. The giant skyscrapers were being built when everyone still travelled round by horse and carriage!

    And why did hats go so comprehensively out of fashion? I'm going to buy me a fedora and wear that sucker everywhere.

    Write or die. A tool that forcibly drives you to write, not actually by killing you, but by being really frikkin annoying, in a fun way.

    I just got a laugh out of looking at the home page, but I did not dare actually start writing. I think I may book mark that and look at it from home. I don't think getting in the habit of writing fiction at work is likely to pay off in the short term. My question is where does your work go, is it saved?

    I only used it for a shortwhile to play about with it. I'm too scared of introducing any tool that might promote disciplined writing in me I don't know if it's got any save capabilities to be honest. I'd guess not, and that you are meant to copy and paste.
