Shaunta Grimes is a middle grade novelist who writes almost every day on Medium. She is no-nonsense and has plenty of experience to share. She’s also a great reader and curator.
This article called How to Become a Better Writer: 100 Resources is pure gold. Each day I read about just one resource. I follow the rabbit trails. I make notes in my Ideas Notebook (another Shaunta idea!) I end the day at the page filled up and ready to write tomorrow
