Free Stuff For Writers!

Everyone loves free things-even (or especially) struggling writers trying to make it in today's tight industry. So I've searched the web and came up with some things to help my fellow writers. Best of all - they're all FREE!!

1) Need help writing a great query letter? Check this out:
    How to Write a Great Query Letter by literary agent Noah Lukeman. Available for Kindle or as a PDF.

2) Everyone needs help with goal planning. Whether it be personal goals, writing goals, or even just goals for what you want to accomplish this summer. With that in mind check out these great goal planning sheets from MoneySavingMom. The first one is a weekly goal planning sheet and the next one is a long term goal worksheet. The great thing about the second one is that it breaks the goals down into smaller bite sized steps - great for writers!
