About This Newsletter

Hi, I'm Jace .

Welcome to this issue of the Noticing Newbies newsletter. Join me as I take you into some nooks and crannies of Writing.Com that you may not have found time to check out yet. This newsletter is about and for you. And for you seasoned members, I hope you'll find something you can take from my ramblings. *Smile*

Word from our sponsor

Letter from the editor

The Newsletter Archives opens with the following: Writing.Com Newsletters were started June 5, 2001 in the hopes to engage our readers in the community each week. Official newsletters are edited each week by various Writing.Com Moderators and cover many different genres.

Although our Writing.Com newsletters are archived here each month, we highly recommend that members subscribe to them in order to stay current. To find the current available subscriptions, refer to your Control Settings and scroll down to Manage Newsletters.

The 13 official member-penned newsletters are a unique aspect of Writing.Com. They are a great resource for members and visitors to the site. These newsletters are written weekly by Moderators and above, arguably senior members with a great deal of working knowledge about both WDC and writing in general.

Anyone who has read my newsletters know I'm very partial to statistics. I love numbers. So here are a few about newsletters.

*BulletGr* Since their inception, there have been 12,790 published newsletters (not including this week's issues). This includes the archived NLs--those written before 2005.

*BulletG* The newsletter with the most published issues is For Authors with 1032. This is followed closely by Fantasy (1027), Romance/Love (1024), and Spiritual (1019).

*BulletR* The newsletter with the fewest published issues is (sad to say) Noticing Newbies with 896. This is followed closely by Action/Adventure (940), Short Stories (942), and Contests & Activities (953).

*BulletV* Throughout the past 20 years, more than 500 different Moderators, Senior Moderators and Staff have written newsletter issues. (I must admit this number is extrapolated by canvassing the top four newsletters, and I feel it's low.)

*BulletB* Last month alone, 29 different authors penned newsletter issues. Often several members prepare two or more newsletters each month

Enough stats. I could go on. Suffice it to say there is no shortage of tips and information available in WDC newsletters. A trivia note: Are you aware that there was a 14th official newsletter? Check out the Newsletter Archives for the subject of that inactive newsletter.

I've prepared a short Survey to gage your interest in newsletters. Are they important to your writing endeavors? To which newsletters do you subscribe? Please take a moment to complete the following survey.

Ask & Answer

Thanks for spending time with me today. At the bottom of every newsletter is a section entitled

*Bullet* *Bullet* *Bullet* Don't Be Shy! Write Into This Newsletter! *Bullet* *Bullet* *Bullet*

followed by a text box. If you liked what you read (or if you didn't), please take time and drop me a line. I'd love to hear your ideas.

From the mailbag:

From Annette : iKïyå§ama made this excellent compendium of writing resources.
The Learning Tree  (ASR)
Helpful instructions on writing, proofreading, editing and reviewing.
#1216919 by iKïyå§ama

         A great resource; check it out. Thanks, Annette.

From the Newsfeed:

From graybabe : I have newsletters here that are very helpful, as well as newsletters from noted authors in my regular email.

         I hope you'll take a moment to fill out my survey and tell me which newsletters here are helpful to you.

From Wolf2114 : I usually head to the library to read different books, magazines, or just read the newspapers.

         The Library--a valuable resource for more than writing topics.

From Jill : Newsletters, reading others' ports, rating and reviewing, being reviewed.

         Just some of the reasons WDC has thrived over the years.

From elephantsealer : The contests... If one can join every single contest, one would get so much satisfaction in writing - even if one does not win...

First of all, writing is essentially something that starts somewhere in one's head/idea; which the writer can almost always do without any instruction. However, in order to write, one has to have ideas running in one's head; then, just write; which one follows with instructions from books or possibly become a member of a writing class...

         There's no shortage of good contests on WDC. And they're free to enter.

From TheBusmanPoet : From my heart. *Smile* Reading comments in the news feed.

         I agree. I often find some great information nuggets in the Newsfeed.
