A humble brag and a useful resource
Add yours in the comments! SHOW off something awesome of yours (a blog post, a published article, a newly-released book, a course, etc.), and TELL me about something cool from someone else.
I added a new Resources for Writers page to DIY Writing to share some blogs, newsletters, e-courses, books, and other tools to help you all on your journey. At that page, you can also download my free e-book, Brainstorming Workbook, to get 12 weeks of writing prompts and worksheets.
