  •  
    Many teachers are now using blogging with their pupils or students. There are a whole range of types of blog post and these can be used to develop a range of writing styles and text types particularly in non-fiction writing. These ideas have been taken from the slideshow The 25 Basic Styles of Blogging by rohitbhargava.

National Novel Writing Month - 0 views

  •  
    Following is from Webware.com (overview of service) "National Novel Writing Month National Novel Writing Month is a really neat service. For 11 months out of the year, it's a place where aspiring writers can congregate, discuss books they love, and talk about what kinds of books they plan to write. But in November, it's home to a flurry of activity. During National Novel Writing Month, users write 50,000-word novels. As they hit different milestones, they update their profiles with information on how far along they are. When the story is complete, each qualifying manuscript idea will be added to the site's Winner's page. Winning authors receive a certificate and a Web badge. If they're lucky, an agent or publisher might like their idea, request to read the manuscript, and publish the book in hardcover."
