20 Free Stock Photo Sites for Writers
Hey Everyone! Today, I want to talk about graphics. If you are a writer, if you have a website or social media account or you create novels, there is a very good chance that you will need graphics at some point. Unless you have the money to fork out for every image you intend to use, you are going to need to create your own. Now, I’ll be the first to tell you that I’m [...]

Looking for something different to add to your book? Check out this list of supernatural creatures for creative writers. I don’t know about you, but I get tired of the same type of supernatural being in every novel I read.

It's just too much to type) really reeled me in. Of course I [...]
