What are some good resources for writers?

Tips for Young Writers & Tips for Young Writers II by H.M. Ward answer the most frequently asked questions that young writers have brought to me.

Holly Lisle has a really big site with lots of free writing tutorials.

Writer's Market has lots of info on publishing. This is also a big fat book you can buy or find in most libraries.

Auditing local college classes is a great way to polish your writing skills. Audits allow you to attend the class at a fraction of the cost. My local university is $25 per audit.
