Resources for Writers

Most of the products or websites listed below are ones which I have personally used and recommend. I do not have any connection with the individuals whose websites I’ve listed but am sharing them because I’ve found them to be so helpful.

This page does not contain any affiliate links.

NOTE: Please do not submit requests of any kind for inclusion in Resources for Writers. Any request of that nature will be marked as spam and the sender blocked. The sole purpose of this section is to share products and services I wish to recommend based on positive personal experience. This policy also helps to ensure I do not unwittingly recommend scams to people. Thank you.

SOFTWARE

Snowflake Pro – useful for planning your novel

From Literature & Latte (with free trials available):

One Stop For Writers*

*I have no personal experience of One Stop, since rather than being able to purchase the software outright, it requires an annual paid subscription (something I avoid due to personal dislike) but am including it here because it was created by the same people behind Writers Helping Writers.
