Running my website for writers SCRIPT ADVICE and THE SCRIPT ADVICE WRITERS ROOM on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/237330119115/ I often come across very valuable advice on the Net for writers.
I also tweet a lot of important help and advice in the form of blogs, links to websites and information on initiatives for writers from the world of television, radio, theatre and film. Here I am on Twitter: https://twitter.com/YVONNEGRACE1 please follow!
