Resource Page for Writers

February 15, 2019

This is an ever-growing list of resources that I have found very helpful for writers--whether fiction or non-fiction! I have added an asterisk (*) with caveats/warnings to some resources. Please note that while I recommend these resources, I do not necessarily agree with their beliefs. I also do not have personal experience with all of these resources.

*Please note that Abbie has used God's name in vain on her blog, which I do not agree with or promote at all.

    1. There is a free version of Grammarly (which is what I use), but they also have a paid version. So yes! Unless you want more advanced options. :)
