I don’t exactly have a vision for this blog, because I didn’t want it to be any one thing, but I knew what I didn’t want it to be. I didn’t want it to be another writer blog–by a writer, for a writer. There are an overwhelming amount of them out there and they surely do a better job than I can. But this morning I thought I’d create just a quick little link page of websites that have helped me. Honestly, this page is for me, as a kind of reference section. If it helps you too, then great!
