Reading and Resources
Books and resources that I highly recommend.
These are the books that sit beside my computer. Some I refer to often, others are there because I've practically memorized the content and just having them close reminds me of how inspiring the content is.
As a writer, I can't go past the following.
The Writer Laid Bare, Lee Kofman
Books that I have read about mental health
Here are just a few of the great podcasts I listen to on a regular basis. There is so much diversity to encourage those who want to be inspired in the writing community!

The Shit No One Tells You About Writing. A practical guide to cracking into the industry with author insights.
The Manuscript Academy. North American centric, but valuable insights into the international market.
So You Want to Be a Writer. More on the craft of writing.
James and Ashley Stay at Home. An insightful look into the industry and how to manage your life in the process.
Byron Writers Festival. Great interviews from recent Festivals. Always inspiring.

5 Writers 5 Minutes. Five authors share their perspectives and insights on writing.
The Creative Penn. All about indie publishing. A bit heavy on the advertising, but lots of great nuggets of wisdom to find too!
