Resources for Writers


Favorite Craft Books

Story Genius by Lisa Cron was one of the first craft books I read that simplified outlining and story structure. I still use it when I need a jumpstart or I feel like something is missing in my outline. 

The Anatomy of Story by John Truby quickly became one of my favorites when I started to dive more into story structure and theme. It's definitely more of an advanced book, but it helped be quickly level up and tackle some huge revisions!
