  1. Great list! I've used some of those resources myself -- and I'll be checking some of the new (to me) ones out.

    One place you might want to check out and consider for the Writing Tips or the Get & Give Critiques list is Flogging the Quill: http://www.floggingthequill.com. Ray Rhamey, the guy who runs it, is both a writer and an editor (and also an all-around good dude). He gives opening-page critiques for free on his website, and his advice is always spot-on.
