Writers’ Resource Library

This Writers’ Resource Library is a collection of topics discussed in my various writers’ groups. Many of the subjects are also things my editing clients have asked me about. Some reflect my own concerns and questions.

I originally began compiling this Writers’ Resource Library several years ago. I believe all the lists are up to date, though none is by any means complete. If you see anything that needs to be corrected or have a suggestion for something new to add, please let me know. This Resource Library is a work in progress.
