Rachel Aaron Bach is another wonderful author who provides great insight into getting that first draft done and edited!

Her book 2k - 1ok is a great read and is available in print and on audible.

WRITING PROGRAMS

I use online writing platform Dabble for my outlining & writing!

It's cloud-based, which means you'll never lose your work, and you can work offline if wifi isn't available and it will immediately sync once you are back online!

Dabble also has zero learning curve due its simplistic design and for just $10 USD a month (billed annually) this is a great affordable option for us starving artists!

If purchasing a writing program subscription isn't in the cards, utilize google docs! It's free and cloud-based so you will never lose your work.

I can't stress that point enough. Whatever medium you choose to write your story, ensure it is cloud-based so you never go through the heartbreak of losing what you've written.
