Writer’s Network- Chrispian H. Burks

While indulging in my daily readings of Problogger.net, I came upon this particular post made by one of Darren’s guestblogger. Chrispian wrote some productivity tips and hints about how he personally juggle between his job, blogging and still able to spare time for his wife, Aeryn who suffers from cancer. A little insight to this guy, Chrispian is a 30 year old Alabamian writer and professional web developer. More of his profile can be found here.

Chrispian’s biggest writing project has to be lit.org with a tagline that speaks for itself, “read, write, respond. A community for writers”. Lit.org has nearly 1,000 registered authors and over 3,000 works published online. Thousands of lines of code, over 10 re-designs in six years, 30,000 page views a month, nods in Time Magazine, The Huntsville Times, Inscriptions Magazine and more.

There are also several other links that he calls as my precious. I’m still wondering if he owns them or not. Part of the list is Writers Unbound, Writing Portal, and Literature Vault.

It seems that Crispian’s own personal portal is good enough to stand alone as a writer community. A great resource to jumpstart your writing quest.

As a child, Yvonne Foong dreamed of growing up to help others. To achieve her ambition, she began studying to become a psychologist. But things changed when tumours were discovered in her body at the age of sixteen. She was diagnosed with neurofibromatosis type 2 -- a genetic illness with no cure. Fighting for survival, Yvonne turned to fundraising and embarked on a medical odyssey to the United States. Her experiences since then have transformed her into a motivational speaker; inspiring hope, faith and strength. Yvonne is currently working to establish a humanitarian foundation that provides NF patients in Malaysia with financial and logistical support. Visit Works of Gratitude to learn more.
