If you are serious about writing that novel, non-fiction book, or book of another genre, you should consider subscribing to Writer's Digest. It is chock-full of information about crafting characters, prompts, ideas, creating villains, genre writing, how to get agents, how to get your book published, best websites for writers, how to get your poetry published, interviews with successful writers and how they achieved their success, and helpful information about writing, freelancing, and other types of writing such as copy writing.
I just looked at the issue from May/June 2010 again and was amazed at how many useful and informative articles there are about the craft (art) of writing, websites, and lots of the above. It gives a generally quiet profession--with the exception of your children or barking dogs in the background--some much-needed company. Sit with a cup of coffee, tea or hot chocolate and get some great tips that you might not have gotten anywhere else.
Also, check out http://www.writersdigest.com/ (without the apostrophe). It is chock-full of writing advice for established and new writers. The website is invaluable; used in addition to the magazine, you are armed for the serious business of writing.
