    I nominate The Write Conversation for your top 100 websites for writing. I’ve been a lover of words my entire life. Since the fourth grade, speaking has been a passion for me. I always wrote my own talks and speeches and earned a communications degree. Then in 2014, I felt compelled to write with the intent to be published. As a newbie, several writer friends suggested I sign up for The Write Conversation and it has proven invaluable to my writing journey. Edie Melson and the entire staff are committed to assist readers with tips in blogging, social media, and writing in both nonfiction and fiction categories. The site even provides help with writer’s conferences. And I’ve been published with articles in both print and online media. I’m currently talking with publishers and writing my first book. Signing up for this website is one of the best choices I made for my writing career.
