As Professional Writers we spend a lot of time researching resources to help with our craft. Wouldn't it be nice to have one place and find everything we need? Or at least something as close to everything. Writer's Window VCD is just that, a Virtual Concierge Directory where you as a write can seek what you need.

What is Writer's Window VCD?

Writer’s Window VCD is a virtual concierge directory and website, of all written material. The launch of this innovative concept the website welcomes professional writers from across the nation, who write in various fields (articles, fiction, non-fiction, lyrics, speech, cartoons, business plans, platforms, etc.). Professional writers will find a directory of resources to help their expose their skills and abilities; and to find help to better their craft. Writer’s Window VCD provides an opportunity for writers to teach their craft and learn from experts.

What Does the Directory Do?

The directory provides professional writers with publishers, writes, gigs, list of conferences, and more. As well as non-writing resources such as printers, photographers, bookkeepers and other personal and business needs. The website shall serve writers locally and nationally. Especially if writers move from one city to another and need local resources. Whether you are a writer or a publisher, poet, accountant, insurance agent; everyone has a purpose for promoting on the site. Check the website at www.writerswindowvcd.comfor more information.

Pardon me if I seem suspicious, but the site has virtually no content, and two contests that require an entry fee are conspicuous on the front page. The impression I get is of something that either isn't ready for prime time and shouldn't even be publicized, or possibly a potential scam. There are already too many sites that claim to offer services that writers need, but that come at a heavy cost. Professional writers generally have a good handle on the resources they need, which are already available in many places on the web. I suspect this site is aiming at writers on sites like Wikinut and other revenue-sharing sites, most of whom *aren't* professionals.

I would like to thank you for your positive feed back. Especially since you took the time to read it fully and got the overall impression of it.
Your first comment is that there is no content. Hopefully with your help and professional writers there will more content, especially geared to the needs of writers and what they want to see. Your second one is about the entry fee for the contests, there is a reason for that and you as a professional writer are very aware of it. I will make it more consistent for those who don't understand why. Your third impression is that its not ready for prime time and should not be publicized. Its not a scam and the reason is that without the input of good writers like you letting us know what you would like to see of a directory it will never fill up. I hope you have further suggestions on what to put on it. Your fourth comment about there being too many websites is true, I hope that the real website listing can be on our directory to further help professional writers and you to grow professionally. Your fifth comment of professional writers generally have a good handle on the resources they need is false. If that were true every writer was born with that knowledge. As you know when you first started you had to do a lot of research and you probably had plenty of free time to do it. Many writers today don't have the luxury to be on the computer 16 hours a day to write, most of us have full time jobs, have a household to maintain and we want to grow as professionals. I am happy to know that you had the time to have all your resources available to you. Your last comment was that we aren't professionals. That's true, most of us had to grow to be one and are still growing. I hope we have a professional writer do an article on how to become one. I would ask you to do so, but you made it pretty clear that you didn't become one, you are one. I will make the necessary changes on this website for other writers to grow and become professionals.
Again, thank you for your feedback, its writers like you that will make this website a success.
Andres

An additional note -- I didn't connect the *founder's* name with you, so I wonder what actual qualifications you have to build and maintain such a site, other than enthusiasm. "“Writing is an active and impressive method we just want to bring all writing needs and total business at one stop.” The grammar doesn't exactly inspire confidence.

The word founder was the only word I could come up with without sounding snobish. I welcome a suggestion from you to change the word to a more fitting qualification. I can tell that you did look at my personal website and decided I was not qualified enough. Although, what would qualify me to do such a website? Your input on that matter is greatly appreciated and I would like to find someone with those qualifications to better help other writers to succeed in their craft.
My enthusiasm stems from wanting to grow as a professional writer, which I am not at this point. Your input on how I can would greatly be appreciated.
The grammar is like totally bad and like it needs some like work. I know that and with help from writers like giving me postive imput will improve my writing and those of other aspiring professional writers.

After seeing the comments, I would like to observe that the founder has not made any great claims to be an ultimate authority on all things writing. Who is, I might ask. And I agree that all pro writers do Not have all the resources they need, especially in one place.
