I'm Dave. I'm new here.
What would you say your most useful writing resource are? Books, websites, etc.
In others words what do you keep by your side when writing?
The site is written by a Christian sci-fi writer, but regardless, most of what he says can be applied across all genres. Plus it's free.
On LitReactor, there are several writing essays. Not sure if you need a premium membership or not.
Best of luck.
EDIT: for books check out:
On Writing by Stephen King
The Elements of Style by Strunk & White
Making Shapely Fiction by Jerome Stern
there's a similar thread from a ways back but I haven't been able to find it.
The above books seem to be popular here (although Strunk & White make me want to jump out a lowrise window).
For grammar, Practical English Usage by Michael Swan is my bible
the Canadian Style, is the general resource on capitalization, punctuation, acronyms, titles, Canadian vs UK vs US spelling
the Art of Fiction by John Gardner is a good resource on writing in general.
Elmore Leonard's rules for writing.
p.s. Hi Dave. Welcome and hope you have fun honing your craft and procrastinating on the message boards!
Hi postpomo. Haha, I feel like there's going to be a lot of procrastination.
And postpomo is correct. Here's a link to a previous thread about this. I don't know if it's the first one or not, though.
Thanks for that
