Writing Resources

I had the privilege of speaking about Overcoming Writer’s Block at the 2010 I_Blog Conference November 5. Although I have experienced my share of writer’s block, I am in no way an expert on how to overcome it. However, I was able to draw upon some amazing resources to put together my presentation, and I want to share those with you!

  1. Paula,
    What a great post to have all these resources in one spot. I will put them to good use.
    It was great to meet you at the conference. I gave you my card – please feel free to contact me from there or through my Shared Path if I can help out with any pet/vet related info in the future.
    Happy blogging!

  2. Wow! I just stumbled on your list. This is amazing! I finally got the courage up to blog. It’s pretty slow going but I figure if I take on one task a day in that direction, I’ll get there someday. 🙂

    You should post a pinable image so I can pin it. (yes, I got sucked in to pinterest 🙂 I tried but the two images that popped up wouldn’t pin.
