Whether you’re a published author or a newbie writer, the resources for writers listed here are for you. As always, I recommend reading widely.
Whether you need instruction on craft or to boost your creativity or to be a better business person or marketer, what works for me (or someone else) may not work for you. It may be that not every step in the books or posts you read will work for you. But some of them will. Try out the exercises and tools. See what works for you.
When you need more or different tools, come back to my resources for writers page. Check out the available resources, and choose different tools. As you learn and are able to apply one new writer’s tool, you’ll want to move on to a new-to-you tool. Start again. Try it out. If it works for you–Great! If it doesn’t, find another book, another tool.
