MORE FROM THE HABIT

The Habit’s library of learning resources will sharpen your skills as a writer and help you develop your unique voice. But what really solidifies those gains will be a community of like-minded writers who give one another just a little more courage. 

A lot of my resources for writers are available for free here at TheHabit.co. If you join The Habit Membership, however, you will have full acess to a larger (and ever-growing) library of content.

But even more importantly, you will be a member of a community. You won’t just consume content; you will connect with other writers, benefitting from their wisdom and good will, and giving them your own. 

The Habit Membership is a culture of generosity.
