Don’t worry, that entry title only feels overtly long.
The following is a small list of resources I’ve compiled (and have, occasionally, used) as part of my daily writing habits, and thought people may benefit from these. They deal with anything from plot ideas to publishing tips to social media tools I’ve found handy. Some aren’t the kind of resources most writers tend to look for (and a few of these I’d written myself), so hopefully they’re eclectic enough to stand out from other lists.
I’ll be updating this list whenever I find more to add!
