Kim (kimgm) | 1032 comments One of the books that helped me when I first began writing was Getting Into Character Seven Secrets a Novelist Can Learn from Actors by Brandilyn Collins -- it's not free, but it's a great resource for characterisation that I still use. Here's the Amazon link http://www.amazon.com/Getting-into-Ch...

Elle Rush (ellerush) | 24 comments 2k to 10k Writing Faster, Writing Better, and Writing More of What You Love by Rachel Aaron was a fantastic deal on Amazon ($0.99). It gave me great tips for keeping up the pace of my novel, and for increasing my word count.

The premades are mostly just stock photos, I wonder if they do anything more elaborate.

You're welcome! Unfortunately, I fell off with my writing due to a class I was taking and a project at work. But, that class is over now, and things have calmed down at work. So, at least for the next 2 weeks I can focus more on my writing. Thanks for asking. Glad to hear you're steadily working on your novel. Can't wait to read it!!!
