Writer's Resource Page

If you are a writer like me, it hasn't taken you long to discover there is a ton of information out there on the internet that makes our jobs easier, but it can sometimes take ages to find it! To that end, I have begun compiling a list of links to resources that may help cut down on the search time, and provide more time for actual writing to take place. This is far from a comprehensive list, and most of these links will be little more than gateways to other links, but it may help point prospective writers in the right direction. Enjoy, and good writing!
