I firmly believe every author needs a toolbox in order to produce quality work. While the items in the toolboxes may vary from author to author, each one is essential. Today, I’m going to share with you the items in my toolbox. (Please know this blogpost may contain affiliate links.)
I also recommend hiring a good editor (I’m available!) and creating a good working relationship with him or her. I adore my editors, and hope to work with them for many years to come. I realize that my toolbox is on the smaller side, but it’s all I need to write. I still read other books on the craft, of course, and will make a separate list for the ones I find most useful. I also read books about subjects I’m researching for stories, the online dictionary by Merriam-Webster, and google the heck out of stuff.
