Every writer has a toolkit. This is mine.

Over the years, I've collected a series of resources to help keep me on the literary straight-and-narrow.

More or less. They include books, software, and other goodies that have helped make me a better (or at least more efficient) writer.

Please note, I don’t use affiliate links or receive any compensation for my recommendations; these are simply tools that I’ve used and liked.

Software
Some writers are old-school and write with notebook and pen. I’m not one of them.
