I’m back! Please enjoy this list of resources for writers from Word Bank’s blog archive. The past three months have been a whirlwind of packing, moving, selling my house in Idaho, and getting settled into my new life in Montana. I’m thrilled to be back in the English classroom as teaching truly is my calling in life. That being said, this first year of planning and grading at a new school is keeping me busy and limiting the time I spend online. To my established readers and new readers, the titles below are self-explanatory and represent some of my best efforts. I will still be editing manuscripts, but can now take the time to further hone the types of projects I take on. In short, life is good. Words are wonderful. Enjoy!
