I love being a writer. I love writing blog posts and articles and creating my own stories. When the creative juices are flowing and I can find the right resources it’s fantastic. But what about when you are struggling to find the resources for not only your writing but your goals in general as a whole?
Here is a list of My Top 10 Writing Resources. Everything from books to courses to websites. You are bound to find something to get you ‘unstuck’ and on your way to reaching your writing goals.
My Top 10 Writing Resources.
1. Breaking Orbit by Jonathan Green-If you are an aspiring author or are a new author who needs a blueprint for writing your first successful book and launching it on Amazon, this is the book you need. Jonathan Green is a multiple best selling Amazon author and in this book he breaks down his entire process in writing, publishing, and launching a book on Amazon.
You will learn everything from finding a niche, research, outlining, writing, editing, choosing a cover and much, much more. Are you concerned because you don’t have a blog, mailing list, or social media following? No worries. You can still launch a successful book. This is a favorite in my Top 10 Writing Resources.
2. 20K A Day by Jonathan Green– If you are a seasoned author or someone who wants to learn how to write faster, pick up this book. It will teach you to use the power of ritual which helps you get into “the zone” every time you sit down at your computer.
You will be able to complete your manuscript faster and be able to release more books this way. Imagine being able to finish books in weeks instead of months. You will learn everything from the writing process, how to stop internal procrastination, how to write a solid outline, and more.
3. Kindlesniper-Kindlesniper is the course companion to Breaking Orbit. It goes a step further by showing you step by step how to set up your Amazon book business, teach you how to outrank the competition, write and edit your book, and launch as well as gather reviews and make sure you stay at the top of your category for years to come.
4. Words to Profit Mastery-If you are looking to start a career ghostwriting books, articles, and blog posts for others, this is a great place to start. You will primarily learn how to write books for clients but you will also learn about writing blog posts and articles as well. In addition, you will learn how to build your business on a solid foundation and grow from there. I recently took this course and have had much success from what I have learned.
5. Coffitivity- Do you get distracted easily but still need to hear some background noise? Then you need coffitivity. This website features the hustle and bustle of your favorite coffee shop at home. I enjoy writing while listening to all kinds of music, but sometimes I turn this on so I can block things out and really get into ‘the zone”.

6. Writer’s Digest Magazine– If you don’t have a subscription to this magazine, you need to get one. It’s the best way I know to keep up with current trends and issues in the writing world.
7. Clearvoice-If you are looking for a place to add your portfolio and find some work, this is a great place to start if you have some experience.
It may take a little while but you eventually will be matched with clients that are looking for the kind of material you write.
It took me awhile, but I finally started getting regular work last November.
8. Writer’s Market- This is another great resource when looking for places to submit your work.
A new edition comes out every year, but I usually update mine every two years or so. Also, I recommend getting the paperback version to make notes and highlight in.
9. KDP Rocket-As an author, have you ever wished you could spy on your competition and see how books were ranking in other categories, find stellar keywords, and research book ideas. Well, now you can with KDP Rocket. I have been using this tool for about a month and I absolutely love it. I get the info I need in a snap and will never have to worry about writing a book that won’t sell again.
10. Grammarly-I’m sure you have seen commercials all over the place for this software but trust me, it’s worth it. I use the “free” version which works fine right now for my needs. I have had a few “Duh” moments as it corrects a misspelled word or a missed comma, but once I run my writing through, I feel much more confident before sending it to clients. If you struggle with grammar and punctuation like I do (hey, we can’t all be perfect) you need to have this tool in your writing arsenal.
I absolutely love every resource in this list and use most of them on a daily basis. They bring great clarity and confidence in achieving my writing goals and I hope if you read or try one or two of them that they will help you too. Here’s to your success and happy writing!
