Writer’s Resources

The past couple of years I’ve studied to understand how writers write, and why readers read.

We live in an amazing time for those of  us who seek knowledge. I found so much information retrievable with only a poke of my stylus or the click of my mouse the sheer volume of it overwhelmed me and often lead me astray.  The questions soon arose in my  mind:  How can I tell  when I am learning a rare jewel of writer wisdom?  How can I tell when I  am wasting my time, only learning an antiquated “formula”?

Time and study showed the way.  I winnowed the jumble of information to only that I found most useful.  Then I created a short list of web materials I believe most useful.  Now, I try to revisit the material referenced in this list every  day.  I don’t know if this material will help an aspiring writer who happens across this page. What I know  is, this material helped me.

See you on the pages — Charley
