Recommended Resources

Write here, write now. Scrivener.


This is my favorite program for writing first drafts. I have a much easier time outlining, keeping track of my characters, and separating scenes and chapters. Can't recommend this one enough!

If you're doing your own formatting, Scrivener also has some fancy features to help you expedite that process.

Query Tracker

When you're ready to query, I recommend using QueryTracker. Not only does this free tool help you find agents (and some publishers) who represent (or publish) your genre, but it can help you keep track of the date you sent your query and how long you've been awaiting a response. I found it worth the paid feature to see the response times reported by other authors.
