These free resources will change your writing life. Discover helpful tips for writing and marketing, free ebooks, superfood recipes to help with brain mush and yoga and hypnosis for clear, creative thinking!

1. Create If Writing - podcast and website
Kirsten Oliphant's catchphrase is 'this is the podcast for writers, bloggers and other creatives who want to build an online platform without feeling smarmy'. She's a writer, blogger and authentic platform builder and I trust her! I'm now listening to everything on her podcast feed and her website is also full of helpful resources for writers and bloggers.

2. Gutenberg Project - free ebooks
I still can't believe all these books are free! If it's a classic and it's out of copyright, it's probably available here. Kafka, Austen, Dickens, Tolstoy and Bronte, if they don't need a first name, their stories are most likely on the list. Dead easy to download on your tablet or to read on your phone.

3. Howlarium - website
I've been a fan of Jason Howell's writing and this website for a long time now. Instead of doing the usual Q&A of predictable questions with one writer, Jason asks one unusual, thought-provoking question of many writers.

4. My New Roots - food blog
Sarah Britton has changed the way I think about food. I learn so much about nutrition from reading the introductions to her recipes. If you're sitting at your keyboard trying to squeeze words out of brain mush, go and cook one of her healthy recipes full of brain foods - think nuts, chia seeds and other superfoods! Her food is colourful, tasty and each bite feels as though it's a magic potion doing something good for you.

5. Tara Stiles Yoga - YouTube videos
Tara Stiles's yoga videos have become an important part of my daily routine. Her videos are fast-moving, so you don't get bored, and easily explained. She has videos from as little as 5 or 10 minutes a day for beginners through to advanced. Try her programs for focus and productivity!

6. Absolute Mind - podcast
Struggling with staying focused, negative thinking or motivation? Then this is the podcast for you. Paula Sweet of Absolute Mind delivers hypnosis, meditation and mindfulness podcasts to address many different issues. Get into an altered state of being and have her work peacefully and powerfully on detangling your mind.
