How to Play Nice in Cyber World

There are admirable potentialities in every human being. Believe in your strength and your truth. Learn to repeat endlessly to yourself. "It all depends on me." ~ Andre Gide

Hey everyone, quick post today, 'cause I'm on my way to my local RWA chapter meeting. But check out my article over at WOW - Women on Writing:

Online Friendships and Virtual Connections: How to Play Nice in Cyber World

I found this a fun one to write, based on everything I' ve learned over the past 5 or so years being part of different online groups. Hope you'll find it useful or a good reminder!


P.S. WOW is always looking for article and column ideas, so it's a good market if you're trying to get your name out there, or if you just have something you'd like to write about. Plus the pay is decent ;) I think they do a really nice job formatting everything, too. I'll have to ask Angela, the editor, what their upcoming issue themes will be. If I find out, I'll let you know.

Happy Saturday!

Great article, Allie!
Where are the submission guidelines located for WOW? Thanks ahead!

Diane, The sub guidelines are under "Contact" from their main page: They're pretty comprehensive, too, which is nice :)

Hello, I followed the link to you from WOW's News Letter. Thanks for the great article about writing groups. Thanks for mentioning that one should get a feeling for the groups. Many of the groups tend to be very cliqueish at first, which is only natural, even one's that you have mentioned and sometimes you just have to hold on. Sometimes you have to try to make friends with the moderators- compliment their work- etc- before you are accepted on bouard. Thanks to you again.
