Resources

Rewind Each of us know someone from our writing and creative journeys who shared a helping hand, a leg up or perhaps a kind word or spot on suggestion. A head-scratching question got answered and computer disasters or writer’s block failed to unglue our psyches and projects. 

These people are indeed giants of generosity.

The purpose of this Resource List is to say thanks and to share what you and I know with others. Together, we might all “see a little further.” No one pays to be listed here.

Thanks y’all—you know who you are.


HERE ARE A FEW OF MY GO-TO WRITING RESOURCES
(New ones will be added so check back often!)

I have personal knowledge of these items, people, and groups. While small now, this will be a swarming resource list-- kinda like the mosquitoes here in Florida during the rainy season which is almost always.

My publisher J.S. Devivre, of E. Gads Hill Press, is far more savvy about these things. A choice few of her recommendations are included from over 30 years of writing for film and theater, authoring 10 novels, penning guidebooks and mystery games, plus helping authors get published.

And no, the list is not in alphabetical order. I’m trying to finish a manuscript.

If you have recommendations for any categories, please email me at LoreRaymond1313@gmail.com so that I can check them out. Give me the name, link, and describe your experience. Include yourself!

Author/Writing/Creativity Blogs with Resource Pages

  • Anne R. Allen’s Blog; she reminded me of something I used to do on my FB page Women as Visionaries with Lore Raymond: My contributors and I each wrote a post which promoted other visionary women every week in a program called Soul Share Saturday. Highlighting other people is good business and just plain kind. Anne also hosts a Congressional Library of Writing Resources that I aspire to read!
