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!
