Treasure Chest
Writing-related resources, news, and reflections to enjoy over the weekend.

  • Lots of great recommendations in this extensive post from The Write Life/Marisol Dahl on “The 100 Best Websites for Writers” (even if we’d humbly suggest that next time, they consider adding one? ;-)).
  • I’m beginning to feel a tad overwhelmed by all the podcasts that are out there; if you want to see one list of podcasts that are recommended “for writers, word nerds, and book lovers,” see Crystal King’s post for Grub Daily.

  • Don’t forget that the next issue of The Practicing Writer will be published very soon!

If you’re not yet a subscriber, you’re always welcome to join us! (There’s no charge, and I do not share/sell/otherwise offer up the subscriber list.)
  • Have a great weekend, everyone!
