2022: The Year of Finishing Novels

These are the resources I am using as I make small changes and new habits that will lead to finishing my work, and becoming the novelist I am working to be. Each of these resources have been read or used by me, and I have found them insightful and/or helpful.

It does not mean I agree with everything said, or agree with the authors’ views or ideas outside of what was written in the book. It is up to you to find the parts in combination that work for you. I have not received any incentive to recommend these resources.
