Like many writers, I have been writing for a good chunk of my life. And I can promise you that none, I repeat, none of my early works will ever see the light of day…ever. But those early samples hold a special place in my heart because they show just how far I’ve come as a writer and I’m not done learning how to be the best writer I can be. During a particularly bad bout of writer’s block I headed to my local book store. I happened across a small but helpful section that had nothing but books about being a better writer. I picked up a couple and bought them. So far I’ve only started going through one, but already I’m finding it helpful.
I also stumbled across a rather interesting site called skill share. I haven’t actually signed up for any classes yet (my life is too hectic right now) but they look like they have a number of classes that I want to get in on. Stuff like creative writing, marketing, editing, etc.
So here’s the question I pose to my fellow writers out there, have you guys found any interesting sights or tools that help you master your trade? Looking forward to learning about them.
