Below you’ll find a running list of things I’ve found useful. Some of them are nonfiction resources, filled with tips, drills, exercises, or guides. Others are things I’ve found fun and inspiring. Progress requires commitment, but commitment requires passion and inspiration. I like looking for and indulging sources of inspiration in fiction, because it helps create a bit of magic. Personally, I need that.
