In this section of the site, we are attempting to bring together all sorts of resources on the internet that we think our members might find interesting and/or useful. There is so much out there but often, unless you know exactly what you are looking for, it can be very hard to find. We look for feedback from you as to what is useful, what is missing that you would like to see added, and, where appropriate, frank commentary about what is of little value.
We have grouped these resources in the following categories. Simply click on the icon to go to the page with these resources.
PLEASE NOTE - When you click on these links you are leaving the TTMD site. Use your backspace key to navigate back. We check the links periodically to ensure that they are still good but if you come across any broken links, please let us know.

Sites that explore the distinction between writing and storytelling and how to gain effectiveness in storytelling.
