Essential Resources for Writers

Essential Resources for WritersIf you are like me, you sometimes pause when writing a sentence in an article or book and try to recall a rule of grammar, syntax, or punctuation. Obviously, we want to get it right. More importantly, readers who know the correct way to spell, punctuate or create a sentence will potentially form a negative impression of us if we are wrong. While we can get by with an occasional error or omission related to proper sentence construction, we must know how to effectively write if we want to develop and keep a reader following. All of this led me to identify the following list of essential resources for writers. I hope you find these resources as useful as I do.
