This page will detail both my writing methods and online resources I’ve found helpful for writing–some of which may surprise you.
I’ve written several blogs about writing, most notably this one on how to build a writing regimen. If you really, actually, seriously want to write, you just have to do it. There are also several blogs on world-building. Feel free to ask me any questions!
I highly recommend adding music to your writing routine. If you have an Amazon Prime account, you already have access to tons of free music, including production studio albums which are great for emphasis and imagery. Audiomachine is one my favorite studios. There’s also a lot of music available on YouTube, Pandora, and other such streaming sites.
Sites and the Internet
Writing exercises: There are lots of great websites out there, and a quick Google search will give you the pick of hundreds. WordPress has a daily word prompt as well, which should show up in your reader.
