Welcome to my tips, suggestions and resources for writers of all types.
I write too and one of the reasons for this Pearl is my frustration of not finding writing resources on the net easily. It's a time staking process and by the time you have found what you were looking for, you are no longer interested. I hope to make it easier for you.
So relax, put your feet up and discover some writing gems that will help, entertain and inform you and hopefully along the way you will find just what you were looking for. Aug 5

People who want to write a cookbook contact me all the time. Often these potential authors have no background in writing, cooking, teaching, or any other credential that would make them appealing to a publisher. But they’re passionate about cooking. Don’t write a book first, I suggest. Start with a blog.
First Write the Blog, then Write the Cookbook
Edit Edited by Bonne Nuit Bijou, OhioMike, Lillian May, Nita and 8 others Writing a cookbook is often a dream of the avid home cook. And why not? Recipes are a treasure trove of experience, history, and love all rolled into one and it's great to share this experience with others.

If you are writing a creative nonfiction essay or a fiction story, writing an outline can be a good way to organise your ideas before beginning. An outline for a story, however, is different from an outline for a research paper. Take care as you write your outline not to make it overly detailed as too much rigidity can kill your creative impulse.
