Savvy writers are always learning, checking blogs, taking webinars, and otherwise improving their craft. No one is perfect, but great writers take the time to get better every time they sit down at the keyboard, before they even think about publishing a book. Sometimes a great website will help you along on your path to greatness, and sometimes you never know you'll need the site until it appears on your horizon. These sites may be off your daily radar, but they'll improve your writing life immeasurably. author_websites
