A friend recently asked me for resources that might help one plunge into novel writing... I'm still navigating the path myself, but I thought I'd share my list to date for all of you other writing fools. In order of usefulness to aspiring novelists:
2. Chris Baty's book "No plot? No problem."
3. John Dufresne's book "A guide to writing fiction."
4. Writer's Dreamkit software (for doing the story-boarding work before writing the book, to iron out those plot holes).
5. Liquid Storybinder software (for actually doing the writing--it is more versatile and complete than Microsoft Word and exports to Word or PDF easily).
