Writer Resources


In the year of 2017-19, I decided to take my writing more seriously. To do that I studied the craft like it was my new-found religion. I read and listened to every piece of advice I could find on writing, publishing, and marketing. Of course, I’m still learning (always am) but I’ve amassed a massive list of resources that I repeatably turn to for advice.

Hopefully, this list helps you as well.
