Writing / Editing Resources

The Internet is a never-ending resource of savvy writing advice, instruction, and help. Here is a copious list of sites offering tips, editing tools, tricks, and techniques for both established authors as well as aspiring writers seeking to find an agent and get published. Check back often, I'll update with new sites that I discover.
