Inspiration for Content Writers and Creative Entrepreneurs

Writing books and blogs to boost your creativity

Books on my desk:

A very wise teacher, Dr. Lezlie Laws, once told me to keep your best writing books within hands reach, so you don’t have to get up and walk across the room while you are writing to retrieve. Here are my desk books in no particular order.

  • The War of Art Steven Pressfield
  • The Forest for the Trees Betsy Lerner
  • The Artist’s Way Julia Cameron
  • The Writing Life Annie Dillard
  • Bird by Bird Anne Lamott
  • The Elements of Style (illustrated) Strunk/White/Kalman
  • Web Copy That Sells Maria Veloso
  • The Associated Press Style Book
  • The New American Webster Dictionary
  • Oxford Thesaurus

Blogs:

These are some stellar blogs—I don’t actually know any of these people (except where noted) so there are no affiliate links here. I’m just a tuned-in fan.

SuccessWorks – Covers SEO copywriting techniques and marketing. (ok, so Heather Lloyd-Martin is the pioneer of SEO copywriting and my mentor. I’m also lucky enough to be part of her team.)

Jeff Goins – Lost your love of writing? Get it back with some daily inspiration from this guy.

Story Fix – Somewhere I read 81% of people want to write a novel. Larry Brooks tells you how to actually write one.
