Writing Resources

a.k.a The Links the Saved my Life. No literally—they did. The bulk of writing is very self-taught, and the same goes with navigating through that crazy process called trying to get published. As someone who loves sharing  gems, here are just some articles, links, and all-around cool writing resources in one spot. It’s an ever-growing list, so there will always be more to add since there’s just so much out there! But it’s good to have too much rather than too little, right? As the wise old Scar says . . .
