Resources For Writers, Editors, and TTRPG Creators

Updated: Jul 20, 2023

There are so many different resources available on the internet, here is a collection of my favorites.

If you can, support your local bookstore! An indie bookstore, a Barnes & Noble, Books-a-Million or other applicable stores. I have an affiliate link at Bookshop.org, I earn a small commission if you decide to purchase any books from my storefront. I do highly recommend ordering books from Bookshop.org even if you do not purchase from my storefront as it supports local bookstores and you can select which bookstore you want to order from (there is even a map to find local stores).

Podcasts

  • Writing Excuses.

  • The Editing Podcast and anything by Louise Harnby she is excellent.

  • Writing Break: America's Editor has been an amazing guide these last few years for me and these 15 minute snippets are perfect for getting you into the rhythm or break you out of a slump.

Gaming

  • Accessibility in Gaming by Jennifer Kretchmer. This is the free version which is jam packed with links to additional resources covering panels, tools, tropes and more.


Advice


Above all; read, listen, and watch. Inspiration and information is all around you. If one way of writing doesn't work for you, check out others and keep at it. No one can write the story the way you can, the story that is waiting in your heart and mind.


If writing a novel seems too big to tackle, then try a short story or novella first. If you can't start at the beginning, start at the scenes that inspire you. I have a small notebook that I carry around to jot down ideas in an almost bullet point format. Those take root and grow, I'll add on to their page once something concrete appears for me.


Last piece of advice for now, work on what you love. Don't force yourself to write something that doesn't bring you passion (unless there is a real paycheck involved and its not a scam). We all have to pay the bills.
