Check out my Trove on Thesaurus Inventus with all the interesting writing-related resources I've found worth sharing.

I'm all for dogfooding your own product and have also been enjoying rediscovering some writing tips and advice that I've found helpful or thought-provoking.

In the process, definitely been feeling the need for a Chrome Extension to speed this process up a bit. So that's coming soon!

Have any feedback? Let me know here, via the contact link on the website (thanks Jake), or on twitter.
