Writing Resources to Improve Your Craft

How To Write A NovelWith my professional life in corporate marketing, I thought I knew how to write. While my grammar may be good, my spelling near perfect and my motivation to write never ending - I have been continually amazed by the revelations I learn as I continue my venture in novel writing.

I have only been novel writing for a few years, completed two manuscripts, have 3 x works in progress, attended numerous training courses, conferences, subscribed to heaps of online resources and purchased an abundant load of books to absorb as much information I can on bettering my skillset.

 My favourite conferences have been held by the Romance Writers of Australia Association (RWA).

And I am still learning.

If any of you out there are new to writing or on the continual journey like me, here have been my favourite resources to date.
