Writing and Creativity Resources

When I sent an early copy of Write Your Novel One Day at a Time (link) to a friend of mine, part of her feedback was to ask whether I could provide a list of resources for books and podcasts that had been instrumental to me in tackling the tremendous learning curve that is writing and publishing.

The writing and creativity resources below have been helpful to me, and I hope they can help flatten the curve for you.
